Leeds are reportedly close to sealing a move for Noa Lang with a ‘personal agreement’ already in place. Marcelo Bielsa has already welcomed Junior Firpo and Kristoffer Klaesson to the club as new signings.
And Jack Harrison’s loan move from Manchester City has been made permanent, taking Leeds’ spending to little under £30million.
But with just under two weeks remaining of the transfer window, Leeds haven’t stopped there.
A deal to sign Lewis O’Brien has been growing ever closer with Marcelo Bielsa keen to bolster his options in midfield.
The £8m fee Huddersfield want though is proving to be a stumbling block in negotiations.

Signing another winger capable of making a difference up front is also said to be on the agenda.
Club Brugge star Land had emerged as a target earlier in the summer, although the Belgian side’s £21m asking price was originally seen as too steep.
Lang scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists last season as the Belgian side won the domestic title.
Club Brugge icon Marc Degryse also pleaded with his former side to keep hold of Lang for the upcoming season.
“I think the management should start a conversation with [Bas] Dost and then there is also the figure of Noa Lang,” he wrote in his column for Het Laatste Nieuws.
“He was very clear in his emotions against Cercle [Brugge] throughout the match [1-1 in the Jupiler Pro League].
“I wouldn’t let him go. He [Lang] is too important for this team.”
But it appears as though Leeds have moved one step closer to getting their man, according to Belgian outlet Voetbal Belgie.
It is said that a ‘personal agreement’ is in place with Lang seemingly expressing his desire to move to Leeds.
The only thing left to negotiate now is the fee between the two clubs and talks are said to be ‘progressing well’.
AC Milan have also been keeping track of Lang over a potential summer swoop, but Leeds appear to have moved ahead.
Lang has already made a big impact for Club Brugge this season, playing his part in five goals in as many matches.
