Leeds chairman Ken Bates has revealed the club are in talks to sign former Chelsea striker Mikael Forssell.
The 30-year-old is a free agent after leaving Bundesliga outfit Hannover at the end of last season and recently had a two-week trial with the Yorkshire club.
The Finland forward has returned to Elland Road to discuss a contract after playing in his country's 2-0 Euro 2012 qualifying defeat to Holland earlier this week.
"We're negotiating to sign Mikael Forssell. He's a very good player," Bates told Yorkshire Radio.
"I had him (at Chelsea) when he made his debut at 17 and scored two goals. He's 30 so he's still young, footballer-wise. He's fit, he's strong, he's big and he wants to play in England.
"He's turned down a chance to go to Greece and he wants to play for us. We're hoping we can tie that one down."
