OFFICIAL: Leeds United’s new signing loaned to Belgian side

Belgian team KAS Eupen has announced on the official club’s website that they have signed Japanese international Yuta Toyokawa on loan till the end of the season.

They have also stated that the player is arriving from Leeds United after English club brought him from J2 League’ side Fagiano Okayama.

Toyokawa is described as a pacey striker, who has an eye for goal. He is a versatile player that can also play on both wings and as a second-striker. However due to his lack of experience, Leeds have decided that it is best for him to go on loan to get to know European football better.

Eupen have been fighting to avoid relegation in Jupiler League this season, and the club’ officials believe that 23-year-old forward can help them beat the drop.

It is well known that Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen wants to bring a powerful centre-forward in January, but it seems that Toyokawa does not have what needed to play in the Championship as of yet.
