Leeds United have announce the signing of Rodrigo Moreno Machado from Valencia CF for a club-record transfer fee of 30 million pounds.
The 29-year-old who can operate as a striker or a winger has joined on a four-year contract that will keep hip at the club until 2024.
Rodrigo started his career with Real Madrid, appearing solely for its reserve teams. In 2010 he signed with Benfica with whom he won four titles, most notably the domestic treble in the 2013–14 season.
The Spanish international is not new to the league as his spell in Portugal with Benefica involved a one-year loan move to Bolton Wanderers in 2011 helping them to a 14th finish in the premier league table.
Ahead of the 2014/15 season, Rodrigo joined Valencia for the campaign on loan, before staying at the Mestalla permanently. In his six seasons with Valencia, Rodrigo made a total of 220 appearances in all competitions, scoring 59 goals also helping them lift the Copa Del Rey during the 2018/19 season, scoring what proved to be the winning goal in the final as FC Barcelona were defeated 2-1.
Rodrigo who has 22 caps to his name will be hoping that he can stage the type of form that got him linked to top European clubs at his new club.
