Rosler 'hopeful' of completing transfer on Monday, Stuart Dallas reportedly set for Leeds

Leeds manager Uwe Rosler is hoping to sign a new player on Monday.

Leeds United boss Uwe Rosler has told the club's official Twitter account that he is 'hopeful' of making a new signing on Monday.

The Whites manager watched on this afternoon as his side beat Premier League outfit Everton at Elland Road, with second half goals from Alex Mowatt and Chris Wood handing Leeds and impressive victory.

With just one week to go until Leeds start their season against recently relegated Burnley, Rosler's squad is almost ready for the start of the Championship campaign - but one more signing may be arriving.

Reports from the Yorkshire Evening Post on Friday suggested that Leeds had agreed a deal to sign Brentford winger Stuart Dallas, who worked under Rosler at Griffin Park.

With a fee of over £1m and a three-year deal on offer, Northern Irish international Dallas is expected to complete his move to Elland Road imminently - and whilst Rosler didn't disclose any names, he did tell the club's official Twitter account that he is hoping to complete another deal on Monday.

Dallas, 24, hit eight goals for Brentford last season, playing a key role on the left hand side of midfield for the Bees - a position he is expected to occupy with Leeds.

The Whites have lacked real quality out wide for the last year, and Dallas' seemingly imminent arrival should rectify the problem, giving the Leeds boss the 4-3-3 formation he's been wanting ever since his appointment earlier this summer.

Dallas is likely to flank Chris Wood with Sam Byram on the right, whilst Lewis Cook, Alex Mowatt and Luke Murphy are favourites to feature in a three-man midfield.

Marco Silvestri will start the season as first choice goalkeeper, with an anticipated back four of Gaetano Berardi, Sol Bamba, Liam Cooper or Giuseppe Bellusci and Charlie Taylor in what looks like a solid Leeds side ahead of the new season.
