Chelsea’s Blackman set to join Leeds on loan

Leeds United are set to sign goalkeeper Jamal Blackman on loan from Chelsea.

An agreement is in place for Blackman, 24, to move to Elland Road on a season-long deal.

It will be Blackman’s fifth spell out on loan – he was at Sheffield United last season and has also had spells with Middlesbrough, Wycombe and Swedish club Ostersunds.

A product of Chelsea’s academy, Blackman has not made a competitive first-team appearance for the Blues.
