LEEDS United could hand new signing Laurens De Bock his debut at Ipswich Town on Saturday.

The 25-year-old Club Brugge left back, who has moved for an undisclosed fee, has signed a four-and-a-half year deal at Elland Road.

De Bock, who will wear the No 12 shirt for Leeds, has played for Belgium through the age groups from under-16 to under-21 and has been called up to the senior squad on several occasions but has yet to make his full debut.

De Bock started his career at KSC Lokeren, with whom he won the Belgian Super Cup during the 2011-12 season, and moved to Club Brugge in 2013, making over 100 appearances for them, including in the Champions League and Europa League.

With Brugge, De Bock has won all three major domestic honours – the Belgian Cup (2014-15), the Jupiler Pro League (2015-16) and the Belgian Super Cup (2016).

De Bock became the third United signing of the January transfer window after the captures of Yosuke Ideguchi and Aapo Halme, and the fourth was Oliver Sarkic from Benfica, also for an undisclosed fee.

Sarkic initially joined the club over the summer on loan, but the whites have now made the deal permanent.

The 20-year-old, who has been capped at various youth levels by Montenegro, has signed until June 2020, and Leeds have an option to extend this by a further year.

Sarkic has been a regular in Carlos Corberan's under-23 side this season and celebrated his signing by netting a penalty in today's 4-3 victory over Hull City at Thorp Arch.
