McKennie, a new addition to Leeds United, described what supporters should anticipate from him and said that playing in the Premier League is a “dream come true.”
Signed By Leeds
Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie has been signed by Leeds on a loan deal that will last through the end of the current campaign.
After Max Wober and Georginio Rutter, McKennie is the third player that Jesse Marsch’s team has brought in during this January transfer window.
The midfielder, who has received 41 American caps, faced off against England in the World Cup group stage match in Qatar in November.
According to Sky in Italy, Leeds has the option to make the agreement permanent in the summer for an initial £30 million; however, this option only becomes a requirement if particular requirements are satisfied.
He Is Extremely Grateful
After committing to Leeds, McKennie told Sky Sports: “I’m absolutely excited. The January window operates promptly. I wasn’t sure where I was heading a week ago, and now I’m coming here.
“It was amazing to hear about the attention. I can start right away because Tyler Adams, Brenden Aaronson, and Jesse Marsch are all individuals I know.
“I’ve heard the support is incredible, and the atmosphere too. Seeing the ecstatic supporters when I arrive is an adrenaline rush for me. Like a 10-fold increase in energy.
What can Leeds supporters anticipate from him? McKennie responded “90 minutes of nonstop back and forth work, tackles, trash talking, and everything else—funny and serious—were all part of the experience.
“I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League, so it’s a dream come true. I’m prepared to have the support system I do have here.
Andy Brassell, A European Expert For Sky Sports
“Juventus must generate revenue. They have traditionally had a high wage bill. Weston McKennie is a player who has performed admirably for them, but he is not a crucial component.
“He has the appearance of a Premier League player who will succeed. When you consider the American link, Leeds becomes clear. It isn’t just them.
