The 29-year-old is set to join the Elland Road outfit ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, with medicals expected to be completed as soon as possible.
It’s a huge coup for Leeds given the calibre of striker they are landing, and Rodrigo will now look to hit the ground running after returning to the English Premier League.
Rodrigo was with Bolton Wanderers on loan during the 2010-11 season from Benfica, scoring once in 17 Premier League appearances.
He has since grown in leaps and bounds, scoring 59 goals in 220 games across all competitions for Valencia and eight goals in 22 games for Spain.
Rodrigo will become Leeds’ club-record signing as the club reportedly agreed a deal after tabling an offer in the region of £30 million.
The Brazil-born forward brings versatility to the table as he can also play as a winger, and it will be interesting to see if he can finally prove himself in the English top-flight.
