Skysports.com understands Leeds United are set to sign Celtic's Darren O'Dea.
The 24-year-old spent last season on-loan at Championship side Ipswich, before returning to Celtic for pre-season.
Now he is heading back south of the border to link up with Leeds in a similar deal.
Leeds are set to conclude his signing in the next 24-hours, and he will spend the whole season at Elland Road.
Republic of Ireland international O'Dea will be eligible to make his Leeds debut in their Championship opener at Southampton on Saturday.
