Exclusive: Leeds exit to be announced today after fee agreed
Leeds United coach Carlos Corberan is set to be appointed the new Huddersfield manager today, Football Insider can reveal.
Negotiations between the two Yorkshire clubs have been finalised over a compensation fee for the Spaniard.
This leaves Huddersfield free to finalise a deal for the Spaniard, 37, to be announced as the successor to Danny Cowley.
This site revealed on Monday that Corberan was in advanced talks to take over the Terriers.
He had accepted their offer to become the new manager but Huddersfield have had to agree a payment to their Yorkshire rivals.
That has now been agreed and he is set to be unveiled four days after Cowley’s dismissal.

Huddersfield pulled the plug on the reign of Cowley and his assistant manager brother Nicky just two days after Friday’s win over second-placed West Brom secured the club’s second tier survival.
The manager-less Terriers were thumped 4-1 by Millwall last night but ended the season on 51 points, three points clear of the relegation zone.
Corberan has spent the last three years at Leeds after arriving in the immediate wake of Victor Orta’s appointment as director of football in 2017.
He has been simultaneously learning his trade managing their Under-23s while also working with the first team as an assistant to Marcelo Bielsa.
