, Leeds sign Jean-Kevin Augustin on loan with RB Leipzig striker terminating his Monaco contract to seal transfer

LEEDS have completed the loan signing of RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin.

The Frenchman, 22, has arrived at Elland Road to boost Marcelo Bielsas hopes of Premier League promotion after spending the last six months at Monaco.

Leeds have landed Jean-Kevin Augustin on loan from RB Leipzig

 

Augustin came up through the ranks at Paris Saint-Germain and scored twice in 31 games before sealing a move to RB Leipzig in 2017.

He netted 20 goals across 67 games during two seasons with the Germans.

But despite his success in the Bundesliga, Augustin was packed off to Monaco on loan last summer where he scored just once in 13 games.

Bielsa will now be hoping the former France U21 international can rediscover his goalscoring touch to fire Leeds back into the big time.

Augustin becomes Bielsas third January signing, with Elia Caprile and Ian Poveda already snapped up by the Argentine tactician.

Leeds have also included an option to sign Augustin on a permanent deal at the end of the season.

And fans are sure to be delighted by his arrival after beating off interest from a number of Premier League sides.

Everton made an approach for Augustin a year ago and were quickly joined in their hunt by Wolves and Southampton.

Leipzig rejected the bids at the time, but are now clearly happy for Augustin to ply his trade elsewhere.
