Bournemouth are closing in on a £6m deal for midfielder Lewis Cook, according to the Telegraph.
The nineteen year old has long been linked with a move away from Elland Road, with a number of top flight club’s keen on securing his services.
However, the Cherries appear to have won the race for his signature with a deal expected to be concluded in the coming days.
He has one year remaining on his current deal with the Yorkshire club and is expected to pen a three year contract with Eddie Howe’s side.
Despite his young age, Cook has made seventy-five senior club appearances, scoring two goals both of which came last season, when he was named the Football League’s Young Player of the Year.
Internationally, he has represented England at U17, U18 and U19 level and was part of the squad that won the European U17 Championships in 2014.
