Leeds United look poised to strengthen their options in the centre of pitch, with Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara having agreed a deal to sign for the Whites.
That is according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who adds that the Finland international is set to undergo a medical ahead of the move.

Signing Kamara will bolster manager Daniel Farke’s options in the Leeds midfield, with Ethan Ampadu and Archie Gray his only real options in the deep-lying role at present.
As a result, the Whites’ search for more additions in the middle of the park has stepped up as the transfer window enters its final days, with Kamara now set to be the first signing in this area.
Leeds’ long-standing interest in Kamara has been well-documented throughout the summer, and interest in Werder Bremen midfielder Ilia Gruev has also emerged in recent days. And with Gruev also set to undergo a medical this afternoon alongside Kamara, it appears that the Whites could be set for a significant double boost to their midfield before the transfer deadline.
It appears that the Elland Road faithful can expect a hectic couple of days before the transfer window shuts tomorrow evening, as Farke seeks to build a squad capable of making an immediate return to the Premier League.
Were Kamara to join the Whites he would become the seventh signing of the summer so far, following on from Ethan Ampadu, Karl Darlow, Sam Byram, Joe Rodon, Joel Piroe and Djed Spence.
