Leeds United FC on the verge of signing Yosuke Ideguchi

Leeds United FC on the verge of signing Yosuke Ideguchiā€

Leeds United are reportedly preparing to bring Japanese global Yosuke Ideguchi to Elland Road - and plan on tying the youngster down come January.

Japanese worldwide Yosuke Ideguchi is believed to close to a move to Elland Road after Leeds United discussed contract terms with the player and he is now expected to arrive to England during the January transfer window.

According to Yorkshire Evening Post, the club's new head of recruitment, Toshiya Fujita, is planning on working out a deal with Ideguchi's J-League side having spent the end of summer in Japan.

The youngster now plays for J-League side Gamba Osaka, where he earned his first professional contract in 2014.

The 21-year-old is one of Japan's brightest stars, winning the J League Rookie of the Year award in 2016 to follow in the footsteps of Takashi Usami, who enjoyed a brief stint at Bayern Munich, and Arsenal prospect Takuma Asano.

Ideguchi has played three times for Japan and scored a stunning goal in the 2-0 win against Australia in the recent worldwide break to secure the Far East nation's place at next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Leeds would be required to secure a work permit for Ideguchi, who now falls short of the Football Association's points-based criteria for non-EU footballers, but the club are hopeful of finding a way to secure the transfer.
