Promotion-chasing Leeds United are set to bolster their squad further in the shape of Luton Town forward Dean Morgan.
The 24-year-old had been on loan at Southend where he scored three FA Cup goals, but failed to hit the back of the net in six league starts.
Morgan has confirmed Leeds have agreed a fee with the cash-strapped Hatters for his services ahead of discussing personal terms on Monday.
"Leeds have agreed a fee with Luton for me and I should be agreeing personal terms with them on Monday," he told Southend's official website.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here [at Southend] everyone has made me welcome.
"Leeds is a long way away from home but it will be amazing playing in front of 37,000 people.
"They are a massive club and it's a massive opportunity."
Morgan would be Leeds' third signing in January behind Sebastian Sorsa and Neil Kilkenny, while Northampton's Bradley Johnson and Stoke's Peter Sweeney are also mulling over moves to the club.
