The Yorkshire Evening Post claim that Leeds are hoping the deal will be concluded in time for the player to make his debut against Millwall on Saturday.
They claim the club has conducted extensive negotiations in the past 24 hours with Middlesborough ahead of the move.
It is claimed that Forshaw wants a move to Leeds over Championship rivals Cardiff and that the clubs is poised to agree a deal, leaving Forshaw to complete a medical.
Football Insider verdict:
This deal has progressed quickly. Forshaw would be a great addition to the Leeds squad and fans should be delighted that the player has picked them over Cardiff, who look like pushing for automatic promotion this season. It says a lot about the stature of the club. The move also signifies the end of the Leeds road for Mateusz Klich, who could now leave on loan for the rest of the season.
