Sportsmail previously revealed discussions were underway between the two clubs. 

Roca has failed to make an impact in Bavaria after joining from Espanyol in 2020.

However, Leeds director of football Victor Orta believes the Spain U21 international would suit the Premier League.

West Ham were credited with interest, too, but Leeds look to have won the race.

Roca made over 100 appearances in LaLiga but struggled to nail down a place in Bayern’s side.

He is two years into a five-year contract at the Allianz Arena.

The Spaniard, who was part of the squad that won the European Under-21 Championship in Spain, has only played in 15 league games for the club.
