Leeds United look set to bolster their ranks by swooping to sign out-of-favour Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt on loan until January.
New Leeds boss Steve Evans has overseen two draws and a defeat in his first three games in charge and has spoken of his need to bring in reinforcements to boost his struggling side, who are yet to win at Elland Road this season.
Leeds are currently locked in talks with the player and hope to finalise the deal in time for him to make his debut in Tuesday evening’s Championship clash against Cardiff – where the Whites will look to claim their first home win at the eighth time of asking.
Bridcutt joined Sunderland in a £2.5million deal from Sunderland in the summer of 2014, but has failed to make a single appearance this season after falling out of favour and could join his former Brighton and Sunderland team-mate Will Buckley at the Championship club.
