Leeds are confident of completing the transfer for left-back Laurens De Bock on Wednesday, according to a report.

The Yorkshire Evening Post claim that De Bock has completed his medical after he arrived at Elland Road on Monday.

He had arrived in Leeds after leaving his team’s Spanish training camp, with talks at an advanced stage.

The report claims that Leeds are offering De Bock a long-term deal, and that the player is turning his back on a top-flight medal with his team Club Brugge currently leading the league by 11 points.

If De Bock is announced today he will be the club’s third signing after already signing Aapo Halme from Finnish champions HJK and Japan international Yosuke Ideguchi.

Football Insider verdict:

Of the three deals this transfer window, the deal for De Bock will have the biggest impact on whether Leeds finally reach the Premier League next season. Thomas Christiansen has really struggled with the left-back position this season, with Cameron Borthwick-Jackson failing to make an impact and Gaetano Berardi admitting his team need some better than him playing out of position. De Bock has fallen out of favour with his club but he has incredible experience and should slot right in at Leeds. The only question mark is whether he can cope with the demanding nature of the Championship, but if he does he could have a hugely positive effect on the team. Leeds look like announcing his signature today, with the medical seemingly done and the final details of the transfer to be ironed.
