New United loan man Tresor Kandol says he just can't wait to get started with the club.
Tres, who has initially joined on loan until January 1 with a view to a permanent move, made the mad dash to Leeds from London on Thursday night in readiness for a first training session with his new team-mates.
The prolific marksman only completed the formalities of his move north within the last hour before the loan deadline, and the 25-year-old is relishing the prospect of throwing his weight behind the club's battle in the Championship.
"It all happened very quickly," Tres told leedsunited.com.
"I sort of knew that something would come up, but didn't know what and didn't know when.
"It was one of those where you are wanting something to happen, but don't think it actually will.
"When the call came about Leeds I wasn't at home so I wasn't even ready for it! It was a case of getting things together quickly."
Tresor has attracted a host of admirers this season with a haul of 13 goals from 21 appearances. He has scored seven in his last three outings.
The six-foot one marksman joined Barnet at the turn of the year after a loan spell at Darlington. He had netted seven goals in 14 appearances for Conference outfit Dagenham before his loan spell with the Quakers and admits he has waited for his chance.
"I've been waiting for a while for the right move to come along," he explained.
"I've been up and down and played at a few places, but this is the right move at the right time.
"When you look where you have come from and something like this comes along...fingers crossed, this is the right time.
"I came up on Thursday night and just couldn't wait to meet everyone and get started."
Tresor did feature at Elland Road earlier this season when he came on as a second half substitute during the 3-1 Carling Cup defeat of Barnet.
Two Ian Moore goals, pictured, and one from Robbie Blake ensured United a smooth passage through, but Barnet bagged a late consolation and emerged with plenty of credit for their second half efforts.
"The first thing that struck me that night was outside the stadium and you don't realise how big it is," recalled Tresor.
"The whole history of the club excites me.
"That night I just couldn't wait to get on. I know Elland Road wasn't full, but there was still something about it.
"We knew going to Elland Road wouldn't be easy and we did well in the second half. We scored and we kept going.
"It was a good experience."
