Reports: Leeds United To Sign Brazilian Ace From Championship Rivals

Press Association journalist Sean Taylor is reporting that Leeds United have done a deal for former Crystal Palace man Andre Moritz.

Moritz, who plays in midfield, played for Bolton last season, but has seemingly now made a move to Leeds ahead of the new season.

The Brazilian played 23 games for Bolton last season, scoring seven goals as they struggled to put an expected promotion push together.

Leeds are currently in a state of relative limbo, without a coach and with little in the way of publicised planning for the summer ahead.

While new owner Massimo Cellino has suggested that he will deal with the coaching situation shortly, the situation has not yet changed. He has, however, interviewed several possible candidates for the post, including ex-Leeds manager Gary McAllister.

Moritz could be a worthwhile addition to a side that struggled last season.

A positive start to the season, which saw Leeds comfortably in the play-off spots come Christmas, was soon eroded by mismanagement, and by the end of the year the threat of relegation hung over the club.
