Leeds United have agreed a deal to sign Yosuke Ideguchi

Leeds have agreed a deal to sign Japan international midfielder Ideguchi from Gamba Osaka.

The 21-year-old will so a loan move to a European club is on the cards.

Leeds have a number of box-to-box midfielders on their books and Prutton wants Ideguchi to either be a specialist anchorman or creative whizz.

Writing in the Yorkshire Evening Post, he said: “Leeds are also set to bring in Japanese international midfielder Yosuke Ideguchi in January and if he has played international football then you’ve got to think he is of a decent standard.

If Ideguchi can add a creative presence or physical guile then that’s what Leeds need

“And if you talk about unknown quantities coming in then you can look at [Ezgjan] Alioski and [Samuel] Saiz and they have settled in well and scored goals and they have adapted to the league.

“If Ideguchi can add a creative presence or physical guile then that’s what need because there are a lot of similar midfielders in there.

“Leeds could do with someone that is either going to be defensively a good organiser or someone that has got a range of passing that can hurt the opposition so if he’s either of those two then great.”
