Leeds United forward Raphinha is set to join Barcelona after the two clubs agreed a deal.

The move for the 25-year-old Brazil playmaker is reportedly worth an initial 58m euros (£49m).

Both clubs announced “an agreement in principle” had been reached, pending the player passing a medical.

In two seasons at Elland Road Raphinha played in 65 Premier League games, scoring 17 goals and providing 12 assists.

Leeds head coach Jesse Marsch had earlier confirmed the player was leaving.
