Becchio travelled to Norwich yesterday afternoon to discuss personal teams ahead of his move, with Steve Morison who is thought to be part of the deal moving in the other direction.
The move was originally thought to be worth £3.5million but suggestions now suggest it could be Morison plus £1million or even a straight swap between the two.
Yorkshire Evening Post writer, Phil Hay tweeted today that he believed Morison was still in Leeds completing his medical, which is thought to have been completed.
Becchio/Morison deals edging closer - LB passes medical at Norwich. Morison's was still ongoing first thing this morning #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) January 31, 2013
Reliably informed that Steve Morison has also passed his medical. No issues with the minor thigh injury he suffered recently. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) January 31, 2013
Becchio handed in a transfer request last Thursday and was subsequently dropped for Leeds' FA cup tie vs Tottenham. The fan-favourite has been heavily linked with moves to Turkey and China but at the moment no foreign club has matched Leeds' asking price and Norwich have moved first to get their man.
