Leeds United are likely to announce the signing of midfielder Darko Gyabi from Manchester City on Monday.

That’s according to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth, who is not anticipating any issues with the completion of the deal.

While Kalvin Phillips looks set to join Manchester City from Leeds this summer, Gyabi himself looks set to move in the opposite direction.

The two clubs have apparently agreed a £5million fee for the 18-year-old, who has yet to make his debut in first-team football.

It was reported last week that Gyabi would have his medical at Leeds on Friday, but despite that, no announcement has yet been made to confirm the deal has been completed.

Now however, it seems Leeds fans might not have to wait much longer to see the teenager become their club’s fourth summer signing, with no concerns over this signing going through.

Asked about the apparent delay in the completion of Gyabi’s move in a QandA for the Yorkshire Evening Post, Smyth wrote: “Finalising paperwork, at a guess, or simply following the convention of announcing on a Monday rather than on a weekend, he had his medical and passed it.

“Everything is agreed and Darko Gyabi will become a Leeds United player. Likely to be Monday at this rate.”

This will likely be something of a relief for those of a Leeds United persuasion.

It is inevitable that the longer the wait for a signing goes on, the more concerns there are going to be about a snag emerging that prevents this deal going through.

However, it seems that in this case, there is no need for Leeds to worry, and given the potential that Gyabi provides that could well be important, considering the long term asset he become for the club.

As a result, Monday does now feel like it could be a rather exciting day for Leeds United supporters, as the club’s busy summer transfer window continues.
