Leeds sign former Barca defender

Published Add your comment

Leeds have signed Argentine defender Fede Bessone on a three-year deal.

The 26-year-old left-back moves to the Championship newcomers from Swansea, who he joined in 2008.

A former team-mate of Leeds striker Luciano Becchio during their time together at Barcelona, Bessone is manager Simon Grayson's fourth signing of the summer. Grayson has already captured the signatures of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, defender Paul Connolly and striker Billy Paynter.
