By Harry Sykes

A busy day at Leeds United continues with the news that Liam Bridcutt has completed his move to Championship rivals Nottingham Forest.

The news was announced by Phil Hay on his official Twitter page on Monday afternoon.

That followed news broken exclusively by Football Insider on Monday morning that Bridcutt was having his medical with Forest.

Hay confirmed that everything was fine with the medical, declaring it a ‘done deal’ although it is still to be officially confirmed by either club.

A journalist on the Nottingham Post also tweeted the news, stating that Bridcutt was signing a three-year contract with his new club.

If the deal is officially confirmed by tomorrow Bridcutt could be in line to make his debut as as soon as Wednesday night, when Nottingham Forest travel to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle in the League Cup.

In an ironic twist, Nottingham Forest then host Leeds at the City Ground in the Championship on Saturday, when Bridcutt will find out how the Leeds fans have taken to his move.

Another Leeds player who will be missing at the weekend is striker Chris Wood who completed his move to the Premier League on Monday.

He hooks up with Sean Dyche at Burnley as he attempts to replicate his stunning form for Leeds last season in the top flight of English football.

In other Leeds news, a report has detailed how much Wood will be boosting his pay packet with his move to Burnley now complete.
