Leeds have confirmed that Sol Bamba will make a loan move with a possible permanent deal looming in the summer, with Neil Redfearn saying that more players will likely join the club in the next week.
The once-great English side currently suffering from a number of controversies, and good news is hard to come by at Elland Rd at the moment as Massimo Cellino stepping down amidst the Football League expelling him from ownership for not passing the 'fit and proper' test.
The side are currently under a transfer embargo but there are some instances in which they can still bring players to the club during the transfer window, including signing players on loan so long as their wages do not surpass a certain amount.
Sol signed a three year deal with Palermo last summer but has had limited appearances for the side since confirming the deal. Leeds would have likely taken him on a permanent basis this month, but due to their transfer restrictions they will need to wait until summer to finalise the deal.
Neil Redfearn told the Yorkshire Post of the deal: "He'll be a good addition and we're hopeful of getting another couple of new faces in next week.
"He's trained with us this morning and he looked good and sharp.
"We need competition in that area, that's clear to everyone, and the key for me is that Sol knows the Championship. He knows this level. He's been here before with Leicester.
He also commented that Sol's flexibility will be a big asset for Leeds, explaining to the club website: "We know about Sol and what he can bring to the side. He can play both left and right side of the defence and he brings great experience that is key in the Championship."
Palermo defensive midfielder Granddi Ngoyi is also believed to be nearing a deal to move to Leeds as Redfearn works around the transfer embargo and attempts to get the club out of contention for the relegation zone in the Championship.
