Former Brentford midfielder Adam Forshaw has completed a move from Middlesbrough to Leeds United.

The Yorkshire side brought in the 26-year-old in a deal worth £4.5million, with the midfielder agreeing a four and a half year contract.

And he admitted it was an easy move to trade Teesside for Elland Road.

"The size of the club, the history, everything just felt right and I can’t wait to get going,” Forshaw told the club's official website.
