Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla will undergo a medical at Leeds on Wednesday, according to Sky sources.
The Sky Bet Championship leaders have been in advanced talks to sign the 32-year-old for the last week and the 'keeper will now have a medical ahead of a move to England.
Casilla has fallen further down the pecking order at the Bernabeu since Thibaut Courtois arrived from Chelsea last summer, with Keylor Navas also ahead of him in the reckoning at Real.
The former Spain international made 17 appearances for Real last season, including their 3-1 defeat to Tottenham in the Champions League group stage.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is desperate for a new goalkeeper. Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman broke a leg in November and Bielsa's only fit senior keeper is Northern Ireland international Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
Sky sources also understand Leeds are looking into a deal to sign Bristol City winger Callum O'Dowda as they look to bring in a winger during the January transfer window.
Swansea winger Dan James is believed to be Leeds' number one target, but Republic of Ireland winger O'Dowda is also being considered as a possible target by Bielsa.
