LEEDS United are on the verge of another signing as Middlesbrough prepare to land Liverpool striker Sheyi Ojo following the sale of Patrick Bamford to the Elland Road club.

Leeds, however, could be about to lose £8m-rated midfielder Ronaldo Vieira to Sampdoria if the Italians increase their initial £2.67m offer.

Cardiff City are also showing interest in the England Under-21 international.

United have agreed a season-long loan deal for Manchester City winger Jack Harrison, who made four appearances on loan at the Boro last season.

The 21-year-old is due to undergo a medical today. Stoke-born Harrison joined City’s squad in January after spending two years in America with New York City, the MLS side controlled by City’s owners.

Former Chelsea youngster Bamford is due to complete a medical at Elland Road after the clubs agreed an initial £7m fee, which could rise to as much as £10m.

The 21-year-old Ojo is on the Reds’ pre-season tour after spending last season on loan with Fulham, making 24 appearances out wide.

Boro are also showing interest in West Bromwich winger Matt Phillips, who could be an ideal replacement if Wolves activate an £18m release clause in the contract of Adama Traore.

Leicester City remain linked with a move for Boro central defender Ben Gibson if they fail to hold on to England star and Manchester United target Harry Maguire.

Liverpool teenager Ben Woodburn has missed the club’s training camp in France as he prepares to go out on loan.

Kelvin Mellor: Bradford-bound.

Sheffield United are vying with Aston Villa to secure the 18-year-old midfielder’s services after Wigan Athletic’s move to take the player was rejected.

Sheffield Wednesday have yet to sign any players amid claims that they have been placed under a transfer embargo for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations.

The club have yet to comment on the claims.

Free agent right-back Kelvin Mellor is expected to complete a move to Bradford City today after rejecting new terms at Blackpool.
