Medical passed: Davis agrees Leeds move to Bournemouth after U-turn - Sources
Leif Davis has completed a Bournemouth medical and is set to finalise a move from Leeds United in the next 24 hours, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
This site broke the news on 15th July that the left-back, 21, was in advanced talks to join the Championship outfit on loan.
The deal then stalled as Bournemouth threatened to pull the plug before it was reignited over the weekend.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider that Davis underwent a Cherries medical on Saturday after the two clubs reached agreement over a season-long loan.
The transfer is expected to be completed in the next 24 hours.
Davis will then be able to link up with his new teammates and prepare for Bournemouth’s Championship campaign starting against West Brom on 6 August.

Marcelo Bielsa is keen for Davis to get regular senior playing experience rather than be a bit-part figure at Leeds.
At Elland Road, recent £13million signing Junior Firpo will be the first choice left-back in the new season, with the versatile Stuart Dallas provided back-up.
That had opened the door to Scott Parker’s side signing Davis after identifying him as a top target.
Davis, who is primarily a left-back but can also move across to centre-back, is keen to be playing regularly.
He has graduated from the Leeds youth ranks to make 14 senior appearances in total.
Four of those came last season, including two substitute appearances in the Premier League.
