The young hot shot has yet to fully establish himself at Pride Park after making the breakthrough in to the first team two years ago.
McLeod spent a spell on loan at Sheffield United last season but The Blades opted not to push through a permanent deal for the 19-year-old.
He is now likely to join League One outfit MK Dons after The Rams confirmed that a deal is in place for McLeod to drop down a division.
Rams director of football Murdo Mackay acknowledged the transfer is close to completion and feels McLeod will benefit from a switch to The National Hockey Stadium.
"If everything goes to plan, Izale will be speaking to the club over the next 24 hours to discuss personal terms," Mackay told Derby's official website.
"I think it would be a good move for him because he has potential but he needs a new start."
