Kristoffer Klaesson excited about Leeds move: They play in a special way

Former Valerenga goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson has explained his move to Leeds United.

Leeds announced the Norway U21 international's arrival this morning.

"They have followed me for many years and it is very reassuring that they have followed for so long. I was a little nervous. They come from a big club, but the first meeting went very well," said Klaesson.

"It is a giant club and there is a lot of history. The coaching staff and the squad and everything is completely sick. Everything is mega-professional.

"They play in a special way and want to play ball all the time. There will be a transition from Vålerenga where more will be played on the result. It will be something you have to practice a lot on, given they want to play ball anyway."

He added: "Going from the Eliteserien to the Premier League is a big step. To me, it seems like the right step. The support staff here is insane. For my part, it feels very right. It's insanely big."
