Rosler is no stranger to Dallas, the German initially signed him at Brentford in 2012 and seems fond of the winger. This looks to be a good deal for the Whites as Dallas featured heavily in an attacking Brentford side that came close to clinching a spot in the play-offs last season. Dallas made 28 appearances while netting six goals for the Bees.
The deal will mean that Dallas is at Elland Road for an initial 3 years, but the club have the option to extend his contract by a further year, if they so wish. It's all expected to go through early next week once a medical has been fully completed.
Rosler has been at the helm for six major signings this season thus far. He told the YEP: "I'm calm because I see the work that (Massimo) Cellino, Martyn Glover and Adam Pearson are putting in. That's why I'm quite relaxed. I think we'll get that job sorted."
