Leeds United have made their second signing of transfer deadline day with German striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga joining from Hamburg on a season-long loan.

United have been keeping tabs on the 25-year-old throughout the summer and stepped up their interest following the sale of last season's top goalscorer Chris Wood to Burnley for £15m.

Lasogga's high wages at Hamburg were initially proving a stumbling block but the Whites have successfully negotiated a deal with the German club to bring the striker to Elland Road.

"It was time that I had to change something and I think Leeds is the right decision for me now," Lasogga told LUFC TV.

"I want to give my best for this club now."

Lasogga has been capped 11 times by Germany's under-21s and was formerly on the fringes of the German national side.

His arrival follows the signature of winger/striker Pawel Cibicki from Malmo on a four-year-deal.

The versatile 23-year-old Swede signed for Leeds at 10am on transfer deadline day.
