Rafael Marquez is believed to be close to signing a contract with Mexican outfit Club Leon.

The Mexican defender is reported to be on his way out at New York Red Bull with reports suggesting a two-year deal is in place to return to Liga MX.

A Leon source told ESPN.com: "The negotiations are going well. All that's missing are the details, but this could happen at any minute."

Ex-Barcelona ace Marquez has recently been linked with a return to former club Atlas but it now appears he may be on his way to joining the Emerald Greens.
