Having been born in the Yorkshire city while his dad Alf-Inge was playing there, Haaland has a strong affiliation for Leeds and fans of the Elland Road club loved his actions.

A few months on and Dallas has told the story of how one of the deadliest strikers footballers asked for his shirt - and what he had to say to him.

"We'd just been beaten 5-1, he played like the superstar he is and ripped us apart," Dallas told the Super 6 podcast.

"And then after the game, I went to shake hands with him and he just said to me, 'Can I swap shirts?'. And I sort, I think if you watch the clip, I sort of like smile and carry on.

"And then he's like shouted at me and I've come back. And he was like, 'Yeah we'll do it'. And he's just swapped shirts and then like just whispered into my ear, like just come close to me and was just like, 'Marching on together!'

"And he's like, 'I follow Leeds' and that was it really. Looking back now I've been smiling and laughing on camera when we've been hammered 5-1 - probably wasn't the smartest of things!

"But yeah look, looking back on it, I will do in years to come, and he'll banging in goals and he'll be the best player in the world.

"And for me to have his shirt is great. It's something I'll be able to tell my kids when I'm older as well, that he asked for mine!"

Haaland has scored an incredible 45 goals in 46 games for Dortmund and has attracted attention from a slew of elite European clubs.

In an old interview, the former Red Bull Salzburg and Molde man went on record to express his Leeds and how he wants to win the Premier League with them.

He told Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten: "I want to be the best possible. The dream is to win the Premier League with Leeds.

"In addition, the goal is to become a better player than my dad was. I hope to get more caps than he did."
