Leeds United are said to have agreed terms with Belgian full back Laurens De Bock.
The talented defender looks set to join the Whites having agreed a four and a half year deal.
All that is left to do is for Leeds to agree a fee with Belgian outfit Club Brugge, where the player has been out of favour this season.
De Bock had been a mainstay in the Blue-Black for the past five years but has been used sparingly this season as he looks to head for the exit.
Having signed for £3.15million back in 2012 from fellow Belgian side Lokeren, De Bock went on to make more than 130 appearances for Club Brugge. 27 of them games have come from European appearances both in the Europa League and Champions League.
The left back was regarded as a potential superstar at a young age and now at the age of 25, De Bock will be hoping a move to Leeds will be the boost his career needs.
The potential signing will end the somewhat struggle Leeds have endured over the last season, with the preferred full back Gaetano Berardi now hoping to contend for his preferred right back position.
With a somewhat high fee expected, Leeds are looking likely to have an expensive January transfer window as they hope to continue their promotion push.
The signing of De Bock now shows Leeds’ intent in the window and promises that the club are focused on what is needed during this window.
