Leeds United are reportedly closing in on the signing of Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien for a fee of £7 million plus add-ons.
The 22-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Elland Road throughout the summer, and reports suggest that Leeds have already had at least one bid rejected by their West Yorkshire neighbours.

According to the Telegraph, Marcelo Bielsa’s persistence in signing O’Brien - who has missed consecutive matches for the Terriers due to Covid-19 - is about to pay off.
They also claim that Leeds are still interested in signing a new winger before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
It is believed that Leeds’ first, and perhaps only bid for O’Brien fell short of Huddersfield’s valuation by at least a few million pounds, but with the Whites’ midfield issues brutally exposed in their 5-1 loss to Manchester United on Saturday, it may be worth paying extra for a player who possesses similar attributes to the likes of Stuart Dallas and Mateusz Klich.
