January target leaves winter training camp ahead of completing Leeds transfer before weekend

According to YEP, Club Brugge left-back Laurens De Bock has left the Belgian outfit’s winter training camp in Spain ahead of his imminent transfer to Leeds.

The Jupiler League title winner is expected to complete all formalities, including a medical, in the coming hours and could be in line to make his debut when the club travel to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Despite De Bock already agreeing personal terms with Leeds, a deal was prevented from being completed on time as other suitors looked to hijack the move.

The 25-year-old is expected to give first-choice left-back Gaetano Berardi a run for the money upon his arrival, and manager Thomas Christiansen will hope his headache in the position finally gets cured.

Apart from the Swiss fullback, the Whites have also had to play Vurnon Anita and Manchester United loanee Cameron Borthwick-Jackson in the role as a quality option was sought after.

Since Charlie Taylor left for Burnley, Leeds haven’t gotten a permanent and primary left-back, but will be hoping to have finally landed a top quality one in De Bock.
