Striker Joe Gelhardt is set to commit his future to Leeds United, with a new deal due to be completed next week.

The young star proved an enormously valuable asset during the Whites' relegation battle last term, often stepping off the bench to salvage a result for United and making six vital goal contributions in the process.

Though his current contract has two years left to run, Gelhardt is one of several players in talks over improved terms.

Winks has 128 Premier League appearances to his name and the bookies are rating United's chances of his capture at 6/1.

For Winks' signature, the Whites will have to battle Everton, who have reportedly held talks with Spurs over a deal for the 26-year-old.
