Leeds United have reportedly agreed terms with Valencia to sign Spain international Rodrigo Moreno, the deal is rumoured to be around €30m up front - with a potential €10m in add-ons.

Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta have reportedly been negotiating the deal in Spain today and reports are they have been successful.

The Brazil born 29-year-old has been at Valencia since 2014 and has scored 59 goals in 220 appearances. He at various times has been linked with moves to some of Europe’s biggest clubs. Now, Valencia have well documented financial issues and the Rodrigo sale would add to the already completed sales of Ezequiel Garay, Francis Coquelin, Dani Parejo, and Ferran Torres.

The fee seems high for a 29-year-old, especially one who had a serious knee injury last year, but there is no doubting his quality. The main thing for me is “if Marcelo Bielsa wants him, then I want him”.
