Leeds United have officially confirmed the signing of AC Milan starlet Zan Benedicic on a season-long loan deal.

The Yorkshire giants have been chasing the Slovenian and increasingly turned in his direction when a deal to sign Roma midfielder Federico Viviani broke down.

Leeds faced a tough time convincing Milan to part with Benedicic however, with the club's new coach, Filippo Inzaghi, having coached the 18-year-old midfielder at youth level and being a firm fan of his talents.

However, now the Slovenian youngster will continue his career at Elland Road.


Benedicic becomes the latest acquisition from an Italian club this summer for Leeds.


Massimo Cellino's side have already signed goalkeeper Marco Silvestri, defender Gaetano Berardi, midfielder Tommaso Bianchi and striker Souleymane Doukara.

They are also in talks with Juventus over defender Frederik Sorensen.
