Bromby: Set for Leeds
Leeds United have reached an agreement to sign Leigh Bromby from Sheffield United.
Bromby is set to join the Whites on a four-year contract, subject to completing a medical on Monday.
The 29-year-old defender re-signed for the Blades from Watford in January but has struggled to make an impact upon his return.
League One side Leeds are expected to pay in the region of £250,000 for the capture of Bromby, whose career started at Sheffield Wednesday.
Manager Simon Grayson told the club's official website: "We're delighted to get things agreed with Leigh. He has good experience in the Championship and he will be a valuable member of our squad.
"There was interest from a few clubs, but we're pleased to get things agreed and Leigh will add competition for places within the squad."
