Leeds United are close to signing Mateusz Bogusz.
The highly rated attacking midfielder is expected to join the Championship outfit this month.
According to a Polish report (translated by SportWitness), Leeds have agreed on a fee with his club Ruchu Chorzów.
The likes of Brighton, Reims and Napoli were monitoring the midfielder as well but Leeds have moved swiftly to secure the player’s services.
The 17-year-old will join up with the club’s youth team now. Bogusz will be hoping to work his way up the ladder and break into the first team in the next couple of years.
The Polish midfielder is a prodigious young talent and if he manages to fulfill his potential with Leeds, the Whites could have a real star on their hands.
Leeds fans seem quite excited about the player’s arrival as well. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the potential transfer.
Here are some of the fan reactions from earlier.
