Leeds United are stepping up their signing blitz by adding striker Sam Greenwood to their ranks today, Football Insider can reveal.
United are putting the finishing touches to the marquee capture of Rodrigo after agreeing a £27million deal announced last night by Valencia.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider that the club are also finalising the capture of Greenwood, 18, from Arsenal.
The forward is putting pen to paper on a three-year United contract today as he completes a £1.5million transfer from Emirates Stadium.
Greenwood is regarded as one for the future as opposed to Rodrigo, who has been earmarked to spearhead the attack for Leeds’ long-awaited return to the Premier League.
The 22-times Spain international is undergoing a medical this morning in his homeland after agreeing the terms of a £100,000-a-week new contract that immediately rockets him into the category of top earner at the club.
