Erling Haaland ‘loves Leeds’ and ‘loves the Premier League’ as Norway teammate claims the Borussia Dortmund star ‘eats like a bear’

Erling Haaland is a striking phenomenon – and he doesn’t just have an appetite for goals.

The Borussia Dortmund striker has torn defences apart thanks to his elite finishing and according to Norway teammate Josh King, his portion sizes.

In 10 games so far, the Norwegian striker has 13 goals this season which has meant his tally since joining Dortmund stands at 70 goals in 69 games.

Sadly though he has been unable to add to that record after suffering an injury in the club’s 4-0 hammering against Ajax in October.

Despite the injury he is still suffering with, the world’s biggest clubs will be vying for his signature in 2022.

The forward has a €75million (£63m) release clause which comes into effect next summer but Marca reported that it has been brought forward – meaning that he could leave as soon as the winter transfer window.

Speaking to Ben Foster on his YouTube channel, The Cycling GK, Watford ace King gave his team mate an insight into what Haaland is like whilst the two are together during international duty with Norway.

King revealed many things that would excite Premier League fans and none more so than Leeds United supporters.

“I do know he loves Leeds,” King told Foster.

“I don’t know if that will happen, but I would love to see him in the Prem. I said that last summer, ‘You need to come to the Premier League’.

“He loves the Prem, [but] he’s still young, so he’s got time.

“He’s such a nice guy. Obviously, in some interviews, he came across [not], but he’s one of the nicest guys, he’s down to earth. He’s just a kid enjoying football.”

Not only is Haaland one of the most deadliest strikers on the planet, he loves his food as well, King revealed.

“He’s just a freak, I’ve never seen anyone eat as much as he does,” he added.

“He’s bulking up. He’s shredded but, I don’t know, he just eats like a bear.”
