Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman set for Leeds medical

Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman is set for a medical at Leeds United.

The Daily Mail says the 24-year-old is due to undergo a medical on Saturday ahead of making his debut in a friendly against Forest Green Rovers at the New Lawn on Tuesday.

Leeds have been looking for a goalkeeper after failing to bring Angus Gunn, Fraser Forster or David Stockdale to Elland Road.

Blackman spent last season on loan at Sheffield United and will join Chelsea club-mate Lewis Baker, who joined Leeds in June.

He will become the second signing made by Marcelo Bielsa, who was appointed to replace Paul Heckingbottom last month.
