Leeds United appear to be edging closer to signing Michael Cuisance, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Bayern Munich midfielder has been given permission to hold talks with the Whites.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are looking to end what appears to have been a very good window on a high. They have brought in the likes of Robin Koch, Rodrigo Moreno and Diego Llorente, along with a handful of incredibly exciting young players.
And it appears that Cuisance may prove the icing on the cake at Elland Road.
The Daily Mail reports that the 21-year-old has told Bayern that he wants more game-time, and that has helped pave the way for what could be an £18 million move to the Premier League.
The Mail has suggested that the Frenchman has now got permission to discuss terms with Leeds. It is noted that the Whites are ready to offer the youngster a five-year contract.

Leeds fans will be hoping that they can now capitalise and get a deal done. It would appear that Bayern would have been keen to keep Cuisance. However, his desire to play regularly has tempted them to consider a sale.
And offering him a five-year deal certainly shows how highly Leeds rate him.
There are potentially hurdles still to clear. But the Whites are seemingly over one large one with Cuisance receiving permission to talk to Bielsa’s side.
