According to Spanish football and transfer expert Guillem Balague, Leeds United will announce the signing of Brazil-born striker Rodrigo today.
After some typical last minute hiccups but now resolved, last night all was agreed, done and dusted.

The 29-year-old passed his medicals during the week after agreeing personal terms with the Elland Road outfit, and while both clubs reached a deal days ago, some hiccups came up in the last minutes.
However, everything was resolved last night and the Valencia star is now set to be a Leeds player officially in the coming hours in a deal worth £35 million.
According to the Athletic’s Phil Hay, the Elland Road outfit are parting with an initial £27 million – a club-record deal – with the striker penning a four-year contract.
Rodrigo will be Leeds first first-team signing of the summer, and Freiburg centre-back Robin Koch could follow him and become the second.
That is taking place in a fortnight, and all eyes will be on Leeds following promotion to the top-flight after a 16-year absence.
