US reporter Tom Bogert says Brenden Aaronson have flown into England and will undergo a medical at Leeds on Thursday. The player is keen to complete a deal in seven days, before linking up with the US National Team.

Leeds look set to finally get their man, after having two bids rejected by Austrian outfit RedBull Salzburg in January. Aaronson chose to remain at Salzburg in order to play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

However, Salzburg lost to Bayern and Leeds have kept themselves in the top tier – by the skin of their teeth. Just hours after the win over Brentford, reports surfaced that Leeds were closing in on a deal to sign Aaronson.

Now, journalist Bogert claims Leeds are inches away from announcing a deal for Aaronson. A £24million deal has been agreed and Aaronson will undergo a medical on Thursday, likely to be at Thorp Arch.

Aaronson is keen to get it done before jetting off to represent his country. The USA play four games in the first half of June, taking on Morocco, Uruguay, Grenada and El Savador. The first is in a week’s time, on June 1.

Aaronson is the start of an exciting summer for Leeds fans. The USA star is the missing link in the middle of the park, the kind of player Mateusz Klich was in the Championship. He has stuttered in the Premier League.

His ability to link the midfield to attack, his goals, his assists, it will give Leeds another dimension. The jury is out over whether he can cope with the adaptation to Premier League football. But he has every chance.
