A move for Lees was first mooted yesterday, and despite him travelling with Leeds to Swindon Town yesterday, the deal seems to have progressed.
Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post also suggested earlier today that the move would go through with no transfer fee exchanged between the two clubs, despite Lees having time left to run on his contract.
Lees has been a consistent presence in Leeds’s sides for the last few seasons, but has been deemed surplus to requirements by the new regime.
Leeds are reportedly in the market for a new central defender, with Chesterfield defender Liam Cooper being linked with a £500k transfer. Nicola Salerno, Leeds’s sporting director, was impressed by Cooper’s display in Chesterfield’s friendly clash with Leeds.
