Leeds United are set to sign Matt Heath and Robbie Elliott until the end of the season.
Leeds United are set to make a double signing with defenders Matt Heath and Robbie Elliott both set to sign short-term contracts until the end of the season.
Heath, who has been on loan with the Yorkshire club since November, is joining on a free transfer from Championship rivals Coventry City, whilst Elliott is joining from Sunderland.
Elliott, who was previously on a short-term deal with Sunderland, was registered as a loan player in order to make his appearance against Coventry on New Year's Day but is set to sign a new deal to keep him at the club until May.
Heath, who had to sit out the game against Coventry under the terms of his loan, joined The Sky Blues from Leicester in the summer of 2005 and made eight of his 35 appearances for the club this season prior to his loan spell at Leeds.
The pair are expected to strengthen The Whites' defence in their bid for Championship survival.
