    Leeds announce the signing of Robin Koch with the towering Freiburg defender arriving for £11.5m as Marcelo Bielsa’s spending spree continues

    • Leeds have wrapped up the signing of Robin Koch from Freiburg for £11.5m
    • The fee could rise to £13m and the towering defender has penned four year deal 
    • Marcelo Bielsa has already broke the club’s record fee for Valencia star Rodrigo  

    Leeds United have wrapped up the signing of Freiburg defender Robin Koch in a deal worth an initial £11.5million.

    The fee is expected to rise with add-ons to around £13m with the 6ft 4ins star agreeing a four year contract. Koch is understood to have said farewell to colleagues at Freiburg’s training camp in Austria on Friday.   

    The Germany international centre-back has become Marcelo Bielsa’s second signing of the weekend after forward Rodrigo arrived from Valencia.

    The club teased fans with his imminent arrival by asking: ‘Want another announcement? Reply to this message and we shall bow to public demand.’

    Koch then replied: ‘Yes…why not?!’ before the club revealed his arrival.  

    Leeds moved for Koch after it became apparent Ben White would be staying at Brighton.

    The 24-year-old features in all but two of Freiburg’s Bundesliga matches last season, helping Christian Streich’s side to eighth place, missing out on a Europa League spot by only a point.

    Marcelo Bielsa has smashed the Elland Road transfer record on Valencia star Rodrigo, bringing the striker in for £35m. 

    Leeds have also landed keeper Illan Meslier, Wigan prospect Joe Gelhardt and made last season’s loan of Helder Costa from Wolves permanent.
