Calvin Phillips will leave the club of his childhood, where he worked through the academy and showed results in the main club.
The deal has yet to be officially completed as Phillips still needs to agree personal terms and pass a medical.
The player moves from Leeds to Manchester City, the transfer amount will be 42 million pounds + bonuses.
Manchester City, having reached an agreement with Leeds to sign the 26-year-old, could promise trophies, Champions League football and a real step forward in his career.
The midfielder could easily follow the example of Jack Grealish, who left his home at Aston Villa last season, to become a major league winner in just one year.
