Leeds United have confirmed that they have signed Zan Benedicic on a season-long loan from Milan.
The young Slovenian joined the San Siro club last summer and spent last season playing under Pippo Inzaghi in the Rossoneri’s Primavera team.
He formed part of the Diavolo’s pre-season tour to the United States, but his early departure prompted speculation that he was heading to the English Championship side.
Now, the Yorkshire outfit have confirmed the 18-year-old attacking midfielder’s arrival by way of their official Twitter account.
“We can now confirm the signing of Zan Benedicic from AC Milan on a season-long loan,” the post on social media reads.
