Leeds United have confirmed Souleymane Doukara is now officially their player.

Leeds United have converted a loan agreement for Souleymane Doukara into a permanent deal.

Doukara, 22, signed on loan from Italian side Catania earlier this summer, but is now officially a Leeds player.

The club confirmed the news during the final hours of transfer deadline day.

Doukara, 22, has made two appearances for Leeds in the Championship, but the striker has not featured during their recent matches.

He sustained an ankle injury in the win over Middlesbrough a fortnight ago and has been on the sidelines since, but his permanent signing shows the club have no long-term worries over his fitness.

Leeds earlier today confirmed the loan addition of winger Brian Montenegro, a former West Ham loanee.

Are you happy Doukara is now officially a Leeds player?
