Liam Bridcutt is set to undergo a medical with Leeds United tonight after thrashing out the terms of a two-year contract at Elland Road.

Leeds are finally on the verge of securing one of their major summer transfer targets following weeks of negotiations for the Sunderland midfielder.

The 27-year-old, who spent much of last season on loan at Elland Road, was set on a return to Leeds having fallen out of favour at Sunderland but complex negotiations over the settlement of his £26,000-a-week deal at the Stadium of Light delayed his arrival.

He and Sunderland shook hands on a settlement last week, however, and despite a further delay in finalising personal terms with Leeds over the weekend, a two-year contract was agreed earlier today.

Bridcutt is expected to be officially unveiled ahead of tomorrow’s Championship clash with Fulham at Elland Road.
