Leeds United transfer news: Championship side complete £400,000 signing of Newcastle United keeper and former Hull City and Middlesbrough FC target Karl Darlow
He has signed a three-year deal until the summer of 2026.
Darlow's representatives have been in advanced talks with Leeds for some time, with the prospects of a switch increasing after top-flight outfit Bournemouth agreed a loan deal with Inter Milan to sign Andrei Radu on a season-long loan and ended their interest in the Newcastle custodian.
United's Yorkshire rivals Hull City and Middlesbrough were also keen on Darlow earlier this summer.
The 32-year-old impressed in a loan spell in East Yorkshire last term, but the transfer demands of his parent club and the financial package involved has ensured that City decided to look elsewhere.
Boro were also reportedly struggling to match Darlow's wage demands with the Teessiders instead electing to bring in QPR keeper Seny Dieng as their first-choice keeper.
Darlow, who had started Newcastle's first two games in pre-season, has become Leeds's second signing of the close season following on from the arrival of Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu for an initial £7m, rising to £10m with performance-related add-ons.
