Leeds deal in place for Valencia striker Rodrigo

Leeds United have a deal in place for Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno.

The Daily Star says Leeds are on the verge of signing Spain striker Rodrigo, who has verbally agreed a three-year deal.

The experienced Valencia star, who had seven goals and 11 assists in 34 games last season, is Marcelo Bielsa's first choice target.

And Leeds representatives flew to Spain on Tuesday to do the deal, with Valencia willing sellers.

Valencia rejected an initial offer of around £27m including add-ons for the 29-year-old, who has 22 caps for his country.

But sources close to the talks believe the deal will get done for around £31m if add-ons can be agreed taking the full potential fee to £36m.
