The 22 year old Ghanaian is a work in progress, a rare thing at Leeds, a TC signing, APOEL were tracking him before TC arrived at Leeds.
One of the criticisms is he is unproven, his best season was in Albania, however he play European football during his time there and did ok.
He is a big lad, 6ft2, strong, hard working (he injured himself chasing down) quick, and quite skillful, he has shown a good touch in his link up play.
Gets forgotten because of the Saiz treble, but Ekuban scored one and assisted 1 that day.
So where do people stand on Ekuban?
More like dare i say it, Mario Balotelli, more about movement, pace, skill etc then brute force (despite both players being big, powerful men).
I like him (big fan of Balotelli as well).
He is something different, he is more mobile then Grot, Lassie etc, as shown with Pandev at Macedonia, Ali can thrive, Saiz and him (Ekuban) linked up well on there debuts, there was an understanding developing.
Second choice striker for me (ahead of Roofe).
Lonergan, Ayling, Beradi, Janssen, Pennington, Klich, Vierra, Gianni, Saiz, Hernandez, Roofe
O'Kane - Anita - Lassoga - Cooper - Weidwald - Dallas - Phillips
He actually seemed to understand a few questions and gave the standard drivel back, but he came across as a decent lad despite the questioners. Like others I don't know what game time he'll get but there was some mention (from his couple of appearances) of him melding well with our other newbies Ali and Saiz. I hope he gets a shot to show his worth. Pace and strength have been a rarity at Leeds in recent years.
