Leicester and Leeds agreed a fee for Max Gradel over the weekend and he has now moved to Elland Road on a two and a half year contract.
Max went to Leeds on loan in October, making a big impact and scoring three goals, and when he returned to Leicester last week he put in a transfer request, unhappy at the prospect of no longer being involved in first team football.
Max, who joined the Academy in 2006, was a popular figture at Leicester who will forever be remembered for one golden moment in a City shirt last season. City were losing a vital promotion game at MK Dons when, in the sixth minute of injury time Max fired home a long range equaliser from a free-kick, It was a season-turning moment on the way to the League One title.
We’re sorry to see him go and wish Max all the best in the future…
