Leeds United brought in 15 new faces during the summer transfer window as manager Thomas Christiansen went about on a massive squad overhauling.
The Spaniard’s biggest task whilst the market opened for business was replacing former striker Chris Wood – the league’s highest goalscorer for last season.
As a result, 4 strikers were brought in, including Dutch youngster Jay-Roy Grot.
The 19-year-old switched NEC Nijmegen for Leeds for £1.44million, and is expected to help the Whites with their promotion ambitions through his goals and contributions.
It appears that’s exactly what the Netherlands youth international wishes to do, and he outlined what he hopes to contribute to the squad.
“If I play as a striker or if I play on the right wing, I do my best”, Grot told YEP.
The striker also believes Christiansen can help take his game to the next level, claiming: “He was also a striker so he can make me learn smart things in front of the goal. I’m really young and he’s really experienced. I think he can help me.”
Grot scored six goals in 24 appearances for NEC last term, and after making his debut in the 2-nil victory over Nottingham Forest a fortnight ago, he’s looking forward to his first start for Leeds when they host Burton Albion on Saturday.
