Burnley are in talks to sign Matej Vydra permanently from Derby County, with Nahki Wells moving in the other direction on loan, according to Sky sources.
Both players are understood to be ready to take medicals at their respective new clubs, should the deal be completed on Tuesday.
Sky Sports News understands he failed to agree personal terms with Leeds, and preferred a move to the Premier League.
Vydra scored 22 goals for Derby last season, but he played no part in the Rams' opening fixture of the new season at Reading.
Wells joined Burnley from Huddersfield Town last summer, but has failed to find the net in just ten appearances at Turf Moor.
Meanwhile, the Rams are poised to complete the signing of Martyn Waghorn from Ipswich for £5m.
