Leeds United have finally agreed a deal to sign Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt on loan, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.
Leeds have been chasing Bridcutt’s signature for the past month, but they were unable to agree a deal with Sunderland and the move looked dead.
The likes of Reading and Cardiff City have also shown an interest in Bridcutt, who is keen on a move away from Sunderland in search of regular first-team football.
However, Leeds have resurrected the deal and are set to seal a deal for Bridcutt before the emergency loan window closes on Thursday at 5pm.
Bridcutt has found himself well down the pecking order at Sunderland this season, failing to make a single appearance, and Black Cats boss Sam Allardyce is happy to loan him out.
Bridcutt is set to go straight into the Leeds squad for this weekend’s clash with Queens Park Rangers.
