Leeds close to €10m deal for Utrecht winger Gyrano Kerk

Leeds United are closing in on the signing of FC Utrecht attacker Gyrano Kerk, according to De Telegraaf.

Italian sides Cagliari and Hellas Verona have been attempting to sign the speedy winger, but Leeds appear to have trumped them.

Utrecht are seeking a fee of around €10m for Kerk, 24, but the maximum bid so far has been €7m from Cagliari.

However, Leeds are close to agreeing a sum that is close to what the Dutch club want.

Kerk has three years left on his contract, but has indicated he is open to a foreign adventure.

In last season’s Eredivisie, Kerk scored 10 goals and contributed eight assists in his 24 appearances.

Kerk is a product of Utrecht’s youth system and has been with the club since 2012.
