Ekuban had been searching for a new club after being told he was free to leave the Whites following the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road in June.

The 24-year-old made 20 appearances for United last season following his move from Italian club Chievo Verona in the summer of 2017 but failed to make much of an impact scoring just once in 991 minutes of action during a difficult spell in West Yorkshire.
