Report: Leeds United to announce second summer signing in 24 hours, could be Lee Erwin

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United are to announce their second summer signing within 24 hours.

Leeds United are to announce their second summer signing within the next 24 hours, according to BBC West Yorkshire.

The Whites signed goalkeeper Charlie Horton as a free agent earlier today, after his recent release from Cardiff City, the club confirmed via their official website.

The next addition is speculated to be Motherwell signing Lee Erwin, as claimed by Sun journalist Andrew Haigh.

The Scottish Sun reported earlier this month that the Motherwell forward had agreed terms on a three-year deal to sign with Leeds, despite helping his side clinch promotion at Rangers' expense to the Scottish Premiership.

Erwin had since flown on holiday to the USA, and could be due back imminently to seal his switch to Leeds.

Bringing in two players early in the summer would be a big morale boost for Leeds, who are transforming their backroom staff after a tumultuous season. 

Owner Massimo Cellino has said he wants the club to get promoted within the next two seasons, and moves in the transfer market are necessary to give new boss Uwe Rosler the team he needs to help accomplish this objective.
