Leeds United have opened talks with Federico Viviani after negotiating a deal to sign the midfielder from Roma.

United are attempting to agree personal terms with Viviani and make the 22-year-old their sixth signing of the summer.

Finalising the details of Viviani’s contract appears to be the only remaining obstacle to a transfer after Roma granted him permission to speak to United.

The former Italy Under-21 international has interest from other clubs in his homeland but is on the verge of a move to Elland Road this afternoon.

Sources close to the player indicated last week that any move to Leeds was likely to be on loan with a view to a permanent deal but Roma have been open to the option of selling Viviani.

Leeds took their tally of new signings to five on Friday by landing right-back Gaetano Berardi on a two-year deal from Sampdoria.
