Leeds winger Max Gradel is on the verge of a move to French side St Etienne.

The 23-year-old, who was the subject of a failed bid from West Ham earlier this summer, will undergo a medical on Wednesday after a deal was agreed.

"On Tuesday evening, agreements were reached for the arrivals of Romanian midfielder Banel Nicolita and Leeds striker Max-Alain Gradel," said a statement on St Etienne's website.

"Both players, who have been in the sights of St Etienne for several weeks, will on Wednesday undergo the traditional medical before completing the final terms of their contracts with ASSE."

Gradel impressed for Leeds last season with 18 goals in the npower Championship.
