New Signing: Mika Väyrynen




Leeds United have signed midfielder Mika Vayrynen on a one-year contract on a free transfer. The Finland international left Dutch club Heerenveen at the end of last season and has penned a 12-month contract with the Championship side with the option to extend it by one more year.
"Leeds United have signed Finland international midfielder Mika Vayrynen," read a statement on the club's official website.
"The 29-year-old, who has won 54 caps for his country, has signed a one-year contract with a further year's option."
United manager Simon Grayson is glad to have reinforced his team with the acquisition of Vayrynen and said: "We're delighted to sign Mika.
"There were good offers from other clubs on the continent, but he has turned them down because of his ambition to play for Leeds and be successful here.
"He's an experienced midfielder, who has won over 50 caps for his country, and he has a fantastic pedigree. He has played with PSV and he had a successful season at Hereenveen last season.
"He can play as an attacking midfielder or as a holding midfielder and he's delighted to get the opportunity to come here."
Vayrynen is an experienced midfielder and has played for Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven among other clubs in his career.
He has scored five goals in 54 international appearances for Finland and will have the company of compatriot Mikael Forssell at Elland Road.
