Leeds United land versatile defender from Juventus

Leeds United have reportedly made another signing by landing the services of 24-year-old Ouasim Bouy but he will not be playing for the Whites anytime soon.

According to Yorkshire Evening Post, the former Ajax and Juventus midfielder is now going to be loaned to Cultural Leonesa immediately by Leeds.

The Peacocks have a partnership with the Cultural Leonesa, and they are sending many young and perspective players to the Spanish second division club, in order to gain some experience and develop further.

Bouy has signed a four-year deal, and he is expected to become one of the regular first team members in the future.

The defender was a part of Ajax Amsterdam youth system, and at the age of just 19 he moved to Juventus in 2012.

In the previous five years, he had been sent on loan to several clubs. Bouy stayed the longest at PEC Zwolle, where he played 41 games. The versatile defender was also a member of Netherlands youth national teams.

His biggest strength is versatility in the backline where he can cover almost every position.
