Leeds closing deal for RB Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson

Leeds United are closing a deal for Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson.

The Daily Mail says Leeds will secure the signing of Aaronson after sealing their Premier League status.

The £25million transfer of the USA international was negotiated at the end of the January window but was contingent on Leeds remaining in the top flight.

Sunday's dramatic 2-1 victory over Brentford triggered the deal and now Aaronson, one of the most highly rated attacking midfielders playing in Europe, will move to Elland Road.

Aaronson spent 18 months at Salzburg making 66 appearances, winning two league titles and scoring 13 goals with 16 assists.

His arrival will add energy to Jesse Marsch's squad but there will be departures as they restructure the squad.
