Wolves left-back expected for medical in Leeds ahead of £3 million move

Leeds could be about to land the bargain of the summer as Wolverhampton Wanderers left wing-back Barry Douglas is expected for a medical today, according to Sky Sports. Leeds have agreed a fee of around £3 million for the Scotland international.

Leeds have been struggling to get deals done over the line this summer. So far just Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman have joined, both on loan from Chelsea. There has been no movement from the club for weeks after the Jamal Blackman deal was announced and finally a deal has been agreed for a player, and at £3 million it could be one of the deals of the summer.

The pressure has been growing on Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani and director of football Victor Orta as the season gets closer and closer. The home game against Stoke City is less than two weeks away now and Leeds haven’t played any new signings in the first-team, Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman have both featured in  young team, made up of mainly under 23 players.

The news that Douglas could be heading to Leeds broke yesterday, a fee was reported at £5 million but somehow, to the annoyance of the Wolves fans the fee is now set to be at just £3 million. There is little doubt that Barry Douglas was the best player in his position in the Championship last season. The 28-year-old is a full Scotland international and cost Wolves just £1 million during their summer spending in 2017.

Leeds are now desperate for a striker and have been interested in Patrick Bamford from Middlesbrough, although it remains to be seen if that is any more than just interest.
