Leeds United are on the verge of signing Juventus defender Frederik Sorensen, according to the Yorkshire Post.

The 22-year-old has spent the past two years at Bologna as part of a co-ownership deal and looks to be heading to Elland Road in a loan deal that could include an option to buy Sorensen next summer. The Dane has represented his country at every youth level and had been bought outright by Juventus earlier this summer.

The club have moved on quickly from missing out on Chesterfield’s Liam Cooper and with numerous Serie A clubs chasing his signature, this will be an impressive move from Cellino’s side. It is believed that his relationship with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, a former Cagliari boss under Cellino, has helped advance talks.
