Scottish striker Lee Erwin has today completed his move back north of the border to join Scottish Premiership club Kilmarnock ahead of the new season.

Erwin joins Killie after being told by Thomas Christiansen that he was not in the plans at Leeds United, after an unsuccessful two years with the club, and a spell that in all honesty he didn’t get the chance to prove himself in. Early summer performances and goals hinted he may well be in the plans but after three goals in the opening two games he was told his time was up, and the hunt for a new club began. Kilmarnock are unsurprisingly the team to sign the striker. I say that because his destination was most likely Scotland, where he will play every week and flourish, close to home again.

Erwin didn’t really get a fair chance at Leeds but he found himself arriving at the same time as last seasons top scorer Chris Wood. We haven’t played two up front in many games since he arrived and he wasn’t ever considered to be the main man in the lone strikers role. I think everyone at Leeds will wish him the best of luck back north of the border, hopefully at a team where he can shine and rediscover the form that got him his move to Leeds in the first place.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
