Leeds poised to sign Brenden Aaronson from RB Salzburg

Leeds United have a deal in place to sign RB Salzburg midfielder Brenden Aaronson, 90min understands.

Jesse Marsch’s side staved off relegation on the final day of the Premier League season by beating Brentford 2-1 – a result that condemned Burnley to life in the Championship after they lost by the same scoreline to Newcastle.

With their top-flight status now secure, Leeds are able to push on with their plans for next season, and 90min understands that a deal is already agreed for United States international Aaronson.

The 21-year-old was the subject of two bids from Leeds in the January transfer window, though RB Salzburg – who made it through to the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League – were unwilling to negotiate a move midway through the campaign.

But Leeds‘ interest never waned and talks have been ongoing about a move to Elland Road ever since. Indeed, it’s 90min’s understanding that Marsch is a huge fan of Aaronson’s and he actively pushed for a deal to be concluded as soon as he was appointed as a Marcelo Bielsa’s successor.
