Leeds United director of football Victor Orta has revealed that Marcelo Bielsa took less than a minute to give the green light on the pursuit of Rodrigo this summer.

The Yorkshire giants have agreed to pay a club-record fee of £30m to secure a deal for the signature of the 29-year-old forward from Valencia.

The agreement with the Spanish giants was in place on Tuesday, and Rodrigo underwent a medical with Leeds in Valencia on Wednesday morning, ahead of completing a move to the Premier League.

The forward will soon take a flight to England and will be at Elland Road to pen a contract with Leeds.
