A report claims that Crewe Alexandra midfielder Luke Murphy has agreed a three-year contract with Leeds United.

Crewe Alexandra midfielder Luke Murphy has reportedly agreed a three-year contract with Leeds United.

Blackburn Rovers had been strongly linked with a move for the 23-year-old, who impressed in League One last season.

However, according to Sky Sports News, Leeds have stolen a march on their rivals, with the playmaker agreeing a contract with the Championship outfit.

It is believed that Crewe will receive a figure of £1m.
