Leonardo Ulloa


Nationality: Argentinian
Height: 6 foot 2 ?
Weight: less than me. st lbs ( kg)


Leonardo was a long-term target of Gus Poyet before he joined the club from Spanish side Almeria during January 2013. The imposing striker joined on a four-and-a-half-year contract and he scored on his debut in the FA Cup fourth round tie with Arsenal, in front of the Amex Stadium’s North Stand. Leonardo began his career in his native Argentina, and his clubs included San Lorenzo, Arsenal and Olimpo, before moving to Spanish side Castellon. He later scored 48 goals in 102 appearances for Almeria since joining the club in 2010 from Castellon, and was top scorer in Spain’s Segunda Division during the 2011/12 season with 29 goals.


Leo has already looked like a class act, scoring a diving header on his debut against the Arsenal. High expectations but let’s hope he can deliver.
