Nunez: Signs for Leeds
Leeds United have signed Honduras international Ramon Nunez after a successful trial with the club.
The 24-year-old, who can play in either midfield or attack, has been at Elland Road for one month and has impressed Simon Grayson sufficiently to earn a permanent deal.
Leeds have now received a work permit for the player and he has put pen to paper on a permanent contract, having scored for the Whites in a pre-season friendly win over local side Bradford Park Avenue.
Nunez played in all three of Honduras' games during this summer's World Cup in South Africa, starting two and appearing as a substitute in the other.
He began his professional career in the American MLS with FC Dallas before moving to Chivas USA, and has since been playing in his homeland and Mexico.
