LEEDS are clos­ing in on the £ 18mil­lion cap­ture of Real So­ciedad’s Spain de­fender Diego Llorente.

Di­namo Za­greb’s Josko Gvar­diol turned Leeds down but talks for Llorente are ad­vanced.

Head coach Marcelo Bielsa feels Llorente is the kind of ball- play­ing cen­tre- half he needs.

Bielsa wanted two de­fend­ers af­ter Brighton re­fused to let Ben White re­turn per­ma­nently and Llorente looks like join­ing Robin Koch, who moved to Leeds from Freiburg for £ 13m.
