Ghanaian young forward Edward Nketiah has lifted the lid on why he rejected several clubs to join English Championship side Leeds United.

Nketiah joined the Yorkshire club on a season-long loan from Arsenal FC on English transfer Deadline Day.

The 20-year-old told manager Unai Emery that he wanted the move to continue his development and he has now revealed why he picked Leeds over a host of other clubs including Swansea, Bristol City and Fortuna Dusseldorf.

“It's great", Nketiah said to LUTV.

“It's a great feeling to finally get it over the line and I'm really excited, looking forward to the future. Hopefully, I can develop the way I want to develop and help the club reach its goals.”

“It was a tough decision, but the history of the club, the past [helped me make my choice]."
