Neil Warnock: Leeds manager signs African striker to replace Luciano Becchio

The departure of Luciano Becchio earlier in the day had left the Yorkshire club needing a striker, and Neil Warnock has opted for the Central African Republic international.

He will move to Elland Road until the end of the season after impressing during a recent trial.

The 25-year-old has also been on trial at Queens Park Rangers, but Leeds have stepped in after Harry Redknapp chose to sign Loic Remy.

Warnock told the club's official website: "He's a player we've had across for a few days and we liked what we saw.

"We had the opportunity to take him on loan and that gives us a chance to have a longer look at him.

"We think he could be an exciting prospect."

Habibou, who has scored 20 goals in 57 league appearances for his current club, is excited to have joined the club.

He said: "I'm very happy to be here. I know about the background of the club and the expectations around the club, and I'm happy to sign and start playing."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
