Leeds United could announce the signing of a Chelsea starlet in the next 24 hours while a striker is set to leave, according to reports.

The Yorkshire Evening Post recently claimed that the Championship side are targeting cover for attacking midfielder Samu Saiz before the loan window shuts.

Meanwhile, Goal.com stated that Chelsea’s Izzy Brown is seeking a loan move away from Stamford Bridge in order to achieve more consistent game time.

Brown played for Leeds’ rivals Huddersfield in the second-half of the 2016/17 season, helping them earn promotion to the Premier League.

The 21-year-old also spent time at Brighton on loan last season, but has been troubled by injuries in the last two years.

Leeds transfer expert Phil Hay has confirmed that the Whites are looking to get a deal done before the deadline for an “attacking midfielder, young and from the Premier League”.

The Championship pace-setters have already signed Jamal Blackman and Lewis Baker from Maurizio Sarri’s side.

Meanwhile, Turkish side Trabzonspor have confirmed the capture of Leeds forward Caleb Ekuban on a season-long loan.

Ekuban joined the Yorkshire side from Chievo Verona last summer on a four-year deal, but failed to make an impact last season.
