Halle signs for Leeds


GUNNAR HALLE yesterday became Leeds manager George Graham's first signing, moving for £400,000 from first division Oldham.

The 31 year old Halle was on the point of signing for Leeds when Howard Wilkinson lost his job as manager in September and the deal fell through.

Graham missed out on signing John Scales when the Liverpool centre back opted instead for a move to Tottenham.

Halle, who moved to Boundary Park from Lillestrom in 1990, has won 52 caps for Norway and can play in either full back position or in midfield.
