The 30-year-old, who had been heavily linked with a move to West Yorkshire for some time, becomes United’s 11th new addition of the summer and their seventh from Italian football.

Antenucci was co-owned by Catania and found himself loaned out to Ternana last season, where he was made captain and hit an impressive 19 goals in 40 appearances for the Serie B side.

The striker’s career has largely been spent below the top-tier in Italy, starting at Giulianova before spells at Ancona, Catania, Venezia, Pisa, Ascoli, Torino, Catania again and Spezia.

Subject to international clearance, Antenucci could make his Leeds debut on Saturday when David Hockaday's side travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford in the Championship.

He posted on his personal Twitter account: "Proud to be a part of this club. I hope to give you a lot of satisfaction."

Leeds have already bolstered their attacking options with the arrivals of Souleymane Doukara, Billy Sharp and Nicky Ajose, but they had been in the hunt for further additions as a move for Rotherham’s Kieran Agard collapsed last week.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
