Leeds: Whites set to agree personal terms with Bamba Dieng

Leeds: Whites set to agree personal terms with Bamba Dieng -Leeds United News

Leeds United are set to agree on personal terms with Marseille forward Bamba Dieng, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Gakpo news

Dieng will actually be the second player the club have agreed terms with today.

The Whites appear to be desperate to land a new forward before tonight’s deadline and wanted to sign PSV’s Cody Gakpo.

Victor Orta even flew out to the Netherlands on Wednesday evening looking to bring the forward back to Yorkshire on deadline day.

However, the Leeds chief returned on his own with Gakpo remaining at PSV, despite Romano confirming that the Whites ‘agreed’ a move with the player himself.

The Latest: Dieng deal

Romano provided a fresh transfer update from Elland Road at lunchtime, revealing that Leeds are ‘closing’ in on Dieng.

The transfer expert said it would be a permanent transfer and not a loan, adding Dieng ‘is now set to agree personal terms and join Leeds’.

Andrea Radrizzani appears to have all but confirmed the deal on Twitter, also implying they will still continue their pursuit of Gakpo.

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

It looks as if Leeds are progressing well with a move for the Senegal international, but as we know, anything can happen on deadline day.

Happy with Dieng?

Yes, definitely!

Should he join, Dieng will provide Jesse Marsch with a much-needed option as a centre-forward, while also being able to play out wide. [Transfermarkt]

The 22-year-old scored seven times and registered three assists in 25 Ligue 1 games last season, and if he can replicate that form in the Premier League, it could be key to Leeds avoiding flirting with the bottom three.
