Leeds United have struck a deal to sign Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara, according to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The Finland international is on his way to the West Yorkshire club to undergo his medical tests later today.
A deal has been agreed between Leeds and Rangers, while personal terms with Kamara has already been thrashed out.

Whites manager Daniel Farke is a fan of the 27-year-old and is finally getting his man as he looks to add more steel and verve to his midfield.
Rangers have already excluded Kamara from their plans for the season after he fell out of favour under manager Michael Beale, and they could be getting almost a hundred times the £50,000 they paid for his services in January 2019.
Reports earlier this month claimed Leeds are paying around £5.5 million to the Scottish Premiership club for the services of the former Arsenal academy player.
He recently returned to Rangers’ Auchenhowie training base after being told to stay away from the club this summer while his future was being sorted out, and he is finally set to join a new club ahead of the transfer deadline on Friday.
Kamara did not get to make a first-team debut for Arsenal, spending time away on loan with Southend United and Colchester United before leaving the North London club for Dundee in the summer of 2017.
He is seven games shy of 200 appearances for Rangers and was a key player as they won the Scottish Premiership title under Steven Gerrard in 2020-21 and the Scottish Cup the following season.
Kamara also helped the Light Blues reach the final of the Europa League last year, and Leeds are getting an experienced and quality player capable of improving their midfield.
Farke is eager to further bolster his squad before the summer transfer window closes tomorrow, and one or two more players could join the Finnish in sealing a move to Leeds in the coming hours.
