Having avoided relegation from the Premier League by the skin of their teeth, Leeds ramped up their transfer activity early this summer to rope in Brenden Aaronson from Jesse Marsch’s former side Salzburg.


Whites boss Marsch wants reinforcements in defence and he identified another Salzburg star as a top target in the shape of full-back Kristensen.



Leeds sporting director Victor Orta sprang into action and Leeds were in negotiations with the Austrian side over a move for the Dane.


Talks progressed well between Leeds and the defender, agreeing on personal terms, and they also have have sorted out a deal over a move for him with Salzburg.



The Yorkshire giants have a agreement in place with Salzburg, which is expected to be in the £10m range for Kristensen’s services, that will see him be reunited with Marsch and Aaronson at Elland Road.


Leeds had to deal with injuries across all positions in the recently concluded campaign, while they are set to add a versatile player to their ranks in Kristensen, who is able to slot into several positions.



However, the 24-year-old is expected to primarily provide competition for Luke Ayling at right-back.
