Understood to be worth around €12m (£10.6m), Wober, who has over two years left on his deal, is set to join the Yorkshire giants as Marsch looks to boost his side’s chances of Premier League survival.

Although a centre-back arrival now appears to be just a matter of time, Leeds United are believed to also be targeting a new left-back.
According to a recent report from Football Espana, the Whites are interested in resigning Alfonso Pedraza from Villarreal.
Clearly looking to transform his side’s backline, Marsch will be hopeful the Whites can improve their defensive record which has seen them keep just two clean sheets in their last 14 matches, in all competitions.
