Jordan Botaka signed on a season-long loan deal from Leeds United on August 11th, 2016.

Nicknamed the Wizard, Botaka began his professional career with Belgian outfit Club Brugge, signing his first pro contract in 2012.

He embarked on a loan spell at Portuguese side Beleneses, before, in 2013, signing for Excelsior, where he made 73 appearances for the club, scoring 11 goals.

That alerted the attention of Leeds, who signed him last summer for a reported seven-figure sum. He played 13 times in the Championship in 2015/16, with his debut coming against Middlesbrough.

Botaka, who represented Holland at U19 level, is also a full international with DR Congo.
