Leeds have reportedly agreed to sign Lee Erwin from Motherwell this summer.

According to The Sun, Motherwell striker Lee Erwin has today agreed to join Leeds United during the summer transfer window.

Erwin, 21, has come up through the ranks at Motherwell having joined as a 12-year-old back in 2006, and is now turning heads in the first team after a great run of form in front of goal.

The 6ft 2in striker has hit five goals in his last nine games to help keep Ian Baraclough's men in the Scottish Premiership, as Erwin played a key role in the play-off final against Rangers by scoring in the first leg.

However, his contract will expire this summer and whilst Motherwell will be entitled to a compensation fee, Erwin is free to choose his next club - and that appears to be Leeds United.

The Sun are reporting that Erwin has this morning agreed to join the Whites as Uwe Rosler's first summer signing, just days after the Yorkshire Evening Post revealed there had been talks between Leeds president Massimo Cellino and Erwin's representatives.

Leeds certainly need help up front given that Mirco Antenucci finished the season as their top scorer with just ten goals, and whilst Erwin may be one for the future, Leeds could have a future star on their hands.

The news may serve as a blow to Celtic, who had recently been linked by The Sun with a move to sign the Scottish forward, with Erwin now seemingly ready to make the move to Elland Road this summer.
