Leeds have agreed a one-year loan deal for Wolves forward Helder Costa which will become a permanent transfer next summer.
Costa has signed a four-year contract at Elland Road, which will start next year and continue until the summer of 2024.
The deal in total is understood to be worth £15m – the most the club has paid since signing Rio Ferdinand for £18m from West Ham in 2000.

The 25-year-old cost Wolves £13m from Monaco in January 2017 but struggled to establish himself in the Premier League last season.
After being part of the the Championship-winning side, Costa made 16 starts in the top flight last year.
Costa will join Jack Harrison from Manchester City and Ben White from Brighton, who have both moved to Leeds on loan.
It comes after Jack Clarke completed his £10m move to Tottenham earlier this week.
