Jay-Roy Grot is on the verge of becoming a Leeds United player, according to claims from the Netherlands on Wednesday afternoon.
De Gelderlander report that NEC and Leeds United have now agreed a fee for the player’s transfer, and Grot will be announced as long as everything goes well with his medical.
Grot was allowed to travel to Yorkshire by NEC, with negotiations between the two clubs progressing well from the start. Now those negotiations have come to a fruitful conclusion, although there’s no mention of price from De Gelderlander.
With the 19 year old only having this season on his contract, NEC will have accepted a relatively low fee from Leeds to complete the deal.
Leeds United were under pressure to sign a striker after selling Chris Wood to Burnley.
Even before the Burnley sale, it was thought another forward could arrive at Elland Road, so there’s every chance Grot won’t be the only signing upfront.
