Leeds have completed the signing of Finland striker Mikael Forssell on a deal lasting until the end of the season.
Forssell had trained with Simon Grayson's squad recently after leaving German club Hannover in May.
The 30-year-old former Chelsea and Birmingham player is confident the competition for places at Elland Road will bring out the best in him.
He told his new club's official website, www.leedsunited.com: "I'm delighted. I'd had three good years in Germany with Hannover, but I've missed English football and really wanted to come back here.
"To come to a club like Leeds is fantastic. It's such an historic club, the team is good, the lads are positive, the facilities are unbelievable and the fans look brilliant."
