Leeds line up Kebe deal

Leeds boss Brian McDermott has lined up a deal with Crystal Palace for Jimmy Kebe, Sky Sports understands.

It appears that Leeds have won the race to land 29-year-old Kebe as a host of Championship clubs were looking to seal a loan deal for Mali international.

Kebe only joined Palace last summer from Reading, but he has started just two Premier League games since making the move.

Now Kebe is set to link up with his former Reading boss McDermott after the pair worked together for a number of years at the Madejski Stadium.

The arrival of Kebe will not deter Leeds from their chase for Hull City winger Cameron Stewart, who they are also hoping to conclude a deal for before the weekend.
