Leeds United have agreed terms with French striker Andy Delort according to  Made In Foot.

 

Delort, 22, who plays for Tours in Ligue 2 has reportedly agreed terms with Leeds over a move to Elland Road and only thing is left is for both clubs to agree a fee.

Leeds are looking for a replacement for Ross McCormack who joined Fulham earlier this transfer window for £11,000,000 and the Elland Road club have only so far signed striker Souleymane Doukara and there are questions over their strike force’s capability to score the required goals this season.

Delort would be a significant improvement, having scored 24 goals in only 36 games for Tours last season in Ligue 2 and is young enough to progress and may be seen as a positive addition.

Delort is also been a reported target of Leeds’ Championship rivals Charlton and Brentford.

The Whites play Millwall at The New Den on Saturday in which will be headcoach Dave Hockaday’s first competitive game in charge since replacing Brian McDermott who was relieved of his duties in May.
