Leeds United boss Brian McDermott says the summer transfer targets are in place and want to sign for the club; he just needs the go ahead from the owners and the chief executive.
McDermott told Yorkshire Radio that he is having a meeting this evening with chief executive Shaun Harvey and one of the club owners and he is looking for clarification to get the deals done.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, McDermott said, “I have a meeting tonight with Shaun Harvey and one of the owners and I need the clarification on where we are at because that is really important.
“The targets are in place and I know the players that we are trying to get want to come to the club, it is just a matter of doing the deals now.
“I need to get clarification that the deals can be done and we want to do them.”
So far this summer, McDermott has signed League One striker Matt Smith from Oldham Athletic on a free transfer.
McDermott continues to be strongly linked with a number of his former players at Reading with Matt Mills, Stephen Hunt, Noel Hunt and Kevin Doyle all on his wish list.
The squad are due to return for pre-season training next Thursday, June 27th, and McDermott admitted at the start of the summer that he was hoping to have most of his deals done by the time he returned.
