Leverkusen agree deal with Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool target Leon Bailey

Bayer Leverkusen appear to have won the race to sign Leon Bailey.

German publication Kicker is reporting that Leverkusen have agreed personal terms with the KRC Genk winger and now just a transfer fee has to be worked out.

It is understood that a fee of around €20million will be enough to land the 19-year-old Jamaican, who is also being courted by AS Roma.

Bailey has been linked with a number of clubs over the past 6 months including Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton and AFC Bournemouth, among others.

An additional report from HLN, who says Hull City are also keen, suggests that Leverkusen will also sign Bailey's half-brother Kyle Butler from Genk before loaning him back to a top-six Belgian club.
