Pascal Struijk is set to join Leeds imminently from top-flight side Ajax, according to a reliable journalist.
Phil Hay, from the Yorkshire Evening Post, broke the news on his personal twitter account on Thursday night.
Pascal Struijk to join Leeds’ development squad. Teenage defender from Ajax and a Holland Under-17 International who was involved in the U17 Euros in 2016. #lufc seriously building up the numbers at that level.

He followed that up with a report in the YEP that claimed the 18-year-old centre-back had flown into England to hook up with Leeds, with the deal set to be wrapped up in the next 24 hours.
It is thought that he will hook up with the Under-23 squad.
Football Insider verdict:
Leeds fans will be more concerned about transfers for the senior squad, but the club is really boosting numbers at the Under-23 level, showing they have a long-term vision for the club. In January they have added Finland Under-19 international Aapo Halme from HJK Helsinki, Oliver Sarkic from Benfica and former goalkeeper Kamil Miazek. Sam Dalby also joined from Leyton Orient as Leeds look to breed the next generation of superstar from within.
