Despite Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish denying any deal late on Wednesday night, Palace boss Tony Pulis has confirmed Kebe is to join Leeds.

With Cameron Stewart in, Leeds boss Brian McDermott is wasting no time in trying to add to his squad. The defeat to Rochdale in the FA Cup clearly hurt him, that was evident in the post-match press conference.

The deal to bring in Stewart sees one winger join the club, now we need another - enter Jimmy Kebe.

Leeds' initial interest in Kebe was revealed yesterday by Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post, sending the Twitter forums into a little frenzy.

Kebe is hoping to complete his deal before Leeds' game against Sheffield Wednesday, and Palace boss Pulis confirmed he is on his way to Elland Road.

Speaking in a press conference on Thursday, Pulis said: "Kebe is on his way to Leeds as we talk. That'll be a loan until the end of the season.

"Opportunities were limited here, because (Jason) Puncheon and (Yannick) Bolasie have done really, really well. Then you've got JT (Jerome Thomas) coming back."
