Betis' Llorente bid accepted

Leeds United have accepted a revised bid overnight from Real Betis for defender Diego Llorente.

Spanish reports suggest the fee is 3m euros (£2.5m), though I understand it is more than that, which is what the Whites rejected earlier this month.

The 30-year-old centre-back has been on loan at Roma for the past 18 months and there was little prospect of him wanting to return to Elland Road, where his departure means a considerable wage off the books.

Salford goalkeeper Alex Cairns will rejoin Leeds United as cover for Illan Meslier following the departure of Kristoffer Klaesson to Rakow Czestochowa.

Cairns will be classed as a homegrown player. The 31-year-old made one appearance for United in his first spell at the club before signing for Chesterfield in 2015.

And defender Charlie Cresswell will complete his £3.8m move to Toulouse after the transfer was revived last week.
