“This summer for me, there was many clubs interested. But when Victor Orta spoke with me and showed me the project, I said ‘wow, this is interesting, they really want me’.
“In this moment, I said ok I want to go to Leeds. The people said to me that a full Elland Road is incredible. I want to see this!”
Firpo scored two goals in 41 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona, whom he joined from Real Betis in 2019.
The Dominican Republic-born defender, who has represented Spain’s Under-21 side on four occasions, has also played in the UEFA Champions League.
He will hope to feature in Leeds’ opening Premier League fixture at Manchester United on Saturday 14 August.
