Italian media claim Leeds United's double deal for former PSG trainees is done

Leeds United are closing on a double deal for Granddi Ngoyi and Sol Bamba

Leeds United have almost completed a double deal to sign Granddi Ngoyi and Sol Bamba.

Italian website Tuttomercatoweb claim the Elland Road based side have struck agreements to loan both players from Palermo.

Their report states: "All done. Ngoyi and Bamba go to Leeds, and say goodbye to Palermo."

Both player began their careers in PSG's youth set up, before moving further afield.

Ngoyi, 26, signed for Palermo in 2013 but has fallen out of favour at the Serie A side, and they are happy to allow the central midfielder to go out on loan.

He is a former French under-21 international who played 17 first team games for PSG.

Bamba has experience in English football, having been a former fan favourite at Leicester City, and he could provide useful cover in central defence. He also played in the SPL with Hibs, and played in Turkey for Trabzonspor before moving to Palermo last summer, but did not manage to break into the side.

Leeds United or Palermo have not yet confirmed the deals themselves, but with reports emerging that the deal is done, that could come soon within the next 24 hours.
