RB Leipzig and AS Monaco send messages to Jean-Kevin Augustin as he joins Leeds United on loan

RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin has joined Leeds United on loan till the end of the season after cutting short his season-long loan at AS Monaco.

The Frenchman featured just 13 times for the Ligue 1 outfit, scoring once, and he will now hope to get regular playing minutes at Elland Road and help the Whites with their promotion bid.


Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is said to be an admirer of Augustin, and it will be interesting to see if the Argentine can bring out the best in the highly-talented striker.

The 22-year-old can seal a permanent move to Yorkshire at the end of the season as there is the option in his contract, and both Leipzig & Monaco have sent classy messages to him via their official Twitter handles.

Leeds will hope that the former Paris Saint-Germain striker can provide Patrick Bamford with much-needed cover and competition, and he could have a huge say on their campaign should he hit the ground running.

Augustin scored 20 goals in 67 games for Leipzig, and a similar return on Elland Road will come very handy.
