LUFC Leeds complete Billy Sharp signing

Leeds United have completed the signing of Billy Sharp from Southampton.

The striker has joined Leeds from the Premier League side on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 28-year-old has spent most of the last two seasons on loan in the championship with Nottingham Forest, Reading and a return to Doncaster Rovers after leaving the South Yorkshire side for Southampton in 2012.

Sharp scored 41 goals in 86 games for Doncaster in the championship before being snapped up by Southampton, where he spearheaded their promotion to the Premier League with 9 goals in 15 games.

The Sheffield born striker found himself frozen out of the Southampton side the following season on loan and he spent most of the season with Nottingham Forest where he scored 11 goals in 40 appearances.

He joined Reading on loan in the first half of last season, scoring 2 goals in 10 appearances before returning to Doncaster, where he scored 4 times in 16 appearances, including one at Elland Road.
