However, Yeboah became an instant hit at Elland Road and won the hearts of the supporters.

“At that time, Leeds was not sure I could play in English football, so they only loaned me for six months and wanted to test me before maybe they could sign me,” Yeboah told Sportsmail.

After enjoying a brilliant season at Leeds United, he signed a permanent deal with the club.

“But I decided to stay at Leeds because of the way the fans treated me. I couldn’t have gone to any other club,” he added.
