Leeds United are reportedly on the cusp of signing Frederik Sorensen from Juventus, according to the English translation of journalist Gianluca Di Marzio’s website.
The Yorkshire club are apparently close to securing Sorensen on loan, with Massimo Cellino near to completing the deal. The defender is apparently keen on a move to England, with the Championship side beating Verona and Genoa to the Danish defender. Sorensen spent last season with Bologna as part of a co-ownership agreement with the club.
Juventus seem likely to bring Daniele Rugani back to fill the hole left by Sorensen.
The addition of the 22-year-old would be a boon for Leeds, who lost stalwart defender Tom Lees to Sheffield Wednesday last week.
Sorensen has played 59 games in Serie A over the course of his young career. The 6 foot 4 defender is regarded as a hot prospect, although he has found himself unable to break into Juventus’s first team during their recent success, which has seen them win Serie A three years on the bounce.
