A deal Leeds United reportedly struck earlier this year could become official today.

The Whites beat competition from Premier League clubs to win the race for Motherwell youngster Stuart McKinstry.

The Scottish Sun reported back in February that the deal will become official in July.


Leeds were due to pay £150,000 up front, potentially rising to £400,000.

McKinstry has dropped a number of hints on social media about the move, with one picture appearing to show him in Leeds' recent intake of scholars.

The Scotland under-17 international will link up with Leeds' impressive academy teams, which have won trophies in consecutive seasons.

Leeds have other business they are working on, with The Telegraph reporting a deal for Helder Costa is close.

The Whites don't always announce their youth signings, but McKinstry is a player they are reportedly paying decent money for.
