Leeds new signing Jay-Roy Grot will be the Championship’s Zlatan… if you believe the memes

Thomas Christiansen's new 19-year-old Dutch forward has set the internet ablaze

Call off the search, we’ve found the best name in football.

Leeds United have officially announced the signing of 19-year-old Dutch forward Jay-Roy Grot from NEC.

Thomas Christiansen’s new teenage target man stands 6ft 4 in tall and is a hulking mound of muscle.

Fans have been excited by their new £750,000 forward’s imposing stature and will hoping to see him bully Championship defenders over the course of the season.

Some have even produced some incredible tweets of the like usually reserved for the enigmatic Zlatan Ibrahimovic…

 

Sensational work, Leeds fans.

Grot has taken the No11 shirt meaning Chris Wood’s recently vacated No9 is still available.

Leeds have been linked with Middlesbrough’s Rudy Gestede though former Elland Road boss Garry Monk is reluctant to sell to his previous employers.

Gestede is also 6ft 4in tall and can be a nightmare to defend against which begs the questions… why are Leeds assembling an American football team?
