Leeds United have agreed a £50,000 fee for Burnley forward Ian Moore who will beat today's transfer deadline if he passes a medical.

With the first team at their annual golf tournament, Kevin Blackwell had been expected to have a relaxing day with no players in or out. But he couldn't resist the chance of snapping up Moore on the cheap.

The striker, who has also played at Tranmere, Nottingham Forest and Stockport, with spells on loan at West Ham and Bradford, cost Burnley £1million but they have decided to cut their losses because he is out of contract at the end of this season.

His signing comes the day after Julian Joachim sent Blackwell a reminder with a starring performance in the reserves' 2-1 win over Newcastle.

After going a goal down Leeds countered with a goal from Joachim and a winner from Seth Johnson, who again impressed and looks odds on to start the next league game against Wolves on April 2.
