Leeds United Once Again New Star at the Club. (Photo inside)

Leeds United have been linked with a move for Belgian defender Laurens De Bock in recent days, and that move now appears to be on the verge of completion.

The Whites have already tied up deals for Aapo Halme and Yosuke Ideguchi this month, but Victor Orta and co are poised to make another signing.

Left back has been a major problem position for Leeds since losing Charlie Taylor to Burnley, with summer signing Cameron Borthwick-Jackson yet to impress and Gaetano Berardi far from a natural left back.

Recent speculation has linked Leeds with a move for Club Brugge ace Laurens De Bock, who would be able to fill the void at left back – if not immediately loaned out like Ideguchi.

De Bock, 25, has made more than 170 appearances for Club Brugge since joining from Lokeren in 2013, winning one league title and one Belgian Cup during his time with the club.

A former Belgian youth international, De Bock has impressed for Club Brugge, and he now looks poised to make the move to Elland Road to try his hand at English football.

Now, Belgian football journalist Tomas Taecke has taken to Twitter today in order to post a photo of De Bock posing with a Leeds United shirt for the first time, suggesting that his deal is on the verge of completion, with a four-and-a-half year deal imminent.
