The deal has not yet been finalised though with Leeds United’s directors still needing to agree to a transfer fee with Juventus.

It shouldn’t be too difficult to conclude from here though – not only have Juventus just been docked 15 points following corporate fraud, but McKennie is clearly desperate to link up with compatriot Marsch in Yorkshire.
