It read: "Raphinha is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Leeds as a winger.

"Raphinha is best known for being co-owner and chief cod catcher of Graveley's fish and chip shop on Elland Road."

They also changed his place of birth from 'Porto Alegre, Brazil' to 'Batley, Leeds.'

The 23-year-old forward touched down in the UK as he prepares to finalise his move to the Premier League side.

Leeds have agreed to a fee with Rennes, worth £17m up front, with a further £4m in add-ons, according to talkSPORT and The Athletic.

Marcelo Bielsa's side – who played out a thrilling 1-1 draw with Man City at the weekend – were originally believed to have bid just £15.5m.
