Leeds United 'to sign Japan midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi'

Leeds United near a deal for Japan midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi, who will spend the rest of the season out on loan, according to a report.

Leeds United are reportedly nearing a deal for Japan midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi.

The 21-year-old, who has scored twice in nine appearances for his country, has made 96 first-team appearances for Japanese side Gamba Osaka since 2014.

According to BBC Sport, Ideguchi will join Leeds in the January transfer window, but will spend the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign out on loan as he is not yet eligible for a work permit.

The report claims that the length of the contract is unknown, but Championship side Leeds are confident that they have beaten a number of clubs to the signature of the international midfielder.

Leeds have collected 33 points from their 21 Championship matches this season, with that total leaving them in seventh position in the table ahead of Saturday's home game against Norwich City.
