Leeds have agreed a fee with Dutch club FC Twente for the services of polish international midfielder Mateusz Klich. He is currently undergoing a medical at the club according tom Phil Hay, in other words he is undergoing one. Dutch media have been reporting that the deal is all but done for the 27-year-old who comes off the back of an impressive campaign in Holland.

News broke a few days ago that Leeds had a bid rejected for the central midfielder but were keen on returning and confident of getting a deal done in the very near future. Thos reports have turned out to be accurate and Leeds haven’t messed about in getting the money sorted for the deal. Klich is very highly rated in Holland and Poland as well as Germany where he spent time making an impact at Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga. Klich scored six goals and created six last season at the highest level of Dutch football and it was clear that Twente wanted to keep hold of the player.

The deal is expected to cost Leeds between £1.5 and £2 million after the second bid was a success. Any worries that Leeds may be going for cheap and cheerful options could well be thrown out with this first signing, taking the total to over £3 million for the summer so far, and it seems more could be set to follow in the near future, reports in Spain and Switzerland are that Leeds are currently in pursuit of players there. More on this story when we get it. It’s a very positive first signing under the Radrizzani era.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
