Leeds United may well have sealed a deal for Rodrigo in just a matter of hours, Super Deporte reports.

Leeds chief Andrea Radrizzani is in Valencia negotiating for the striker, and it is thought that talks are progressing well.

The Whites have looked to get Valencia’s asking price down, but the same source claims that the transfer fee is likely to be higher than first expected.

The Spanish paper does not name a figure, but it is likely that Leeds will have broken their transfer record to seal a deal for the 29-year-old.

Rodrigo, himself, should not take much persuading to come to Elland Road.
