Leeds United are lining up a loan deal to sign former player Max Gradel on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy.The winger has barely featured for Bournemouth this season and will try and sort out the deal once he returns from Africa Cup of Nations duty.
Gradel, 29, has made it clear he wants to leave Dean Court after getting frozen out under Eddie Howe in his second spell at the Vitality Stadium.
He is desperate for first-team football and has been tracked by West Ham and Burnley, along with Marseille and Nantes in France.
Gradel has been frustrated after signing a new four-year contract in the summer and getting told he was part of Howe’s plans.
And Leeds are hopeful of sealing a deal to suit all parties, with Gary Monk keen to add attacking options to his squad for the second half of the season promotion push
