Description: Mikael Forssell United's Finnish International looking to put a ball in the box for Leeds here on the Elland Road pitch. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Portsmouth at Elland Road on the 1st October, 2011. Mikael replaced Ross McCormack on 78 minutes in the game against the Hampshire outfit.

After a successful trial with The Whites the United manager Simon Grayson signed up the German born Finnish International Mikael Forssell on the 8th September, 2011. The initial deal will last up until the end of the 2011-12 season. The Striker was given the number 18 shirt for Leeds and made his debut in the Championship game against Crystal Palace on the 10th September, 2011, replacing Andy Keogh on 58 minutes. Grayson commented after the move: "Mikael has been training with us for a few weeks now and we have seen what he is all about. He has shown his qualities and we know what he will bring.
...He is hungry and has a desire, and he will be a welcome addition to our squad."

Leeds United: Lonergan, Connolly, Lees, O'Dea, White, Snodgrass, Howson, Clayton, Pugh, Keogh, McCormack.
Subs: Becchio for Keogh, Forssell for McCormack, Vayrynen for Snodgrass.
