Leeds United are set to complete the signing of Bryan Verboom from Belgian club Zulte Waregem, it is being reported.

Belgian website Voetball Nieuws report that Verboom has agreed personal terms, and the deal just needs the final signatures of all parties.

HITC Sport reported exclusively a week ago that Leeds were showing interest in Verboom and leading the chase, ahead of Cardiff City, West Brom, and Hull City. The understanding was that the Belgian side were demanding around £2 million.

Verboom is a left-back, and would provide cover in a vital position with Charlie Taylor's future in doubt.

Taylor is being sought by Premier League sides, and would essentially become his replacement, with his contract set to expire next summer.

Leeds have signed seven players this summer, last week clinching a deal to sign right-back Luke Ayling, while last season's loanee Liam Bridcutt remains a possible candidate to return.

Despite their new additions, the Whites are without a win over their first two Championship matches, and face Fulham at Elland Road this evening.
