Leeds United have signed Spain forward Rodrigo from Valencia for a club record 29m euro (£26m) fee.

Rodrigo, 29, has signed a four-year contract with Marcelo Bielsa's side, who are back in the Premier League after a 16-year absence.

He scored 59 goals in 220 games for Valencia, helping the La Liga club win the Copa del Rey in 2018-19.

Leeds' previous record transfer was former England captain Rio Ferdinand, who cost £18m from West Ham in 2000.
