Tottenham are close to completing a deal to sign Archie Gray from Leeds.
Sky Sports News understands the 18-year-old has completed his medical and there is every expectation he will sign for Spurs.
The deal will be around £25m to £30m with Joe Rodon – who spent last season on loan at Leeds – moving to Elland Road on a permanent deal.
Leeds rejected an initial £35m bid from Brentford on Saturday, despite the teenager being given permission to undergo a medical with the west Londoners.
Gray enjoyed a breakout season at Elland Road, making 52 appearances in all competitions as Leeds lost in the Championship play-off final to Southampton – a game where he played the full 90 minutes.

He is the son of former Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Burnley striker Andy Gray, and first featured in a first-team squad three months before his 16th birthday, when he was named on the bench for a Premier League game with Arsenal in December 2021.

“Another false dawn at Tottenham, who were top of the table and unbeaten after 10 Premier League games under Ange Postecoglou.
“Their capitulation in the 4-1 home defeat against Chelsea in November became the norm as the season progressed. Their defensive stats in the final 28 games resembled a team in a relegation battle.
“Better midfield protection and competent defensive depth are required – if they are to stand any chance of fighting for a top-four finish next term.”
