Newly-promoted Leeds United agree a club-record deal thought to be worth around £27m for Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno.

Newly-promoted Leeds United have agreed a deal to sign Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno.

The Spanish club confirmed on Tuesday night that an agreement in principle is in place with Marcelo Bielsa's side, subject to a medical and "other formalities" being completed.

The deal is thought to be worth around €30m (£27m), which would make Rodrigo Leeds' most expensive ever signing - surpassing the 20-year-old record previously held by Rio Ferdinand.

"Valencia CF have reached a preliminary agreement with Leeds United FC this Tuesday for the transfer of footballer Rodrigo Moreno, at the expense of completing all the documentation and other formalities and passing the mandatory medical examination," read a statement from Valencia.

"Valencia CF want to thank him for his commitment and effort over the last six seasons - in which he has played a total of 220 games, scored 59 goals, and helped to win a cup title. Valencia CF wish him all the best in this new stage of his sports career."

Rodrigo, who has scored eight goals in 22 appearances for Spain, has previously been linked with the likes of Barcelona, Liverpool and Arsenal.
