Mohamed Camara agrees terms with Leeds United, £30.1m deal including bonuses to seal transfer
Leeds United are set to finalise the signing of RB Salzburg star Mohamed Camara, according to Krone.
The Austrian newspaper has reported on their website that the Malian international has agreed on the switch to Elland Road, and could become the new record sale of the club.
It is shared that the Whites will eventually pay up to £30.1million, with bonuses included, as they get set to smash their own transfer record with Kalvin Phillips on the way out.
Negotiations have been said to be going on for weeks, as Victor Orta looks set to reinforce an area that has been crying out for just that for many years now.
The breakthrough came over the weekend, with Salzburg seemingly ready to buckle and lose their third star man to Elland Road this summer.
Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen have already made the switch, and that may have played a huge role in the decision of Camara to also make the switch.

Well, this could get very interesting.
All sources around Elland Road suggest that RB Leipzig man Tyler Adams will be the man to replace Phillips, so could this be a double move from Victor Orta?
Krone is Austria’s largest newspaper, so it isn’t exactly a poor source and will surely have close links to RB Salzburg, the side currently dominating domestically.
Camara arriving alongside Adams would be brilliant business, with the price for the American only just said to be going above £10million, it would be a steal.
To get Camara in as well would leave those two and Marc Roca fighting for spots, with Adam Forshaw and Mateusz Klich as backup options to those.
That would be depth we could only dream of after nearly four years of having consistent problems with those in that area and availability.
Tihs is certainly one to watch very closely.
