Albion are poised to sign Leeds United's Bradley Johnson on a three-month loan deal, with the attacking midfielder agreeing to join the club until 3rd January.

The London-born 21-year-old is travelling south tonight, and is set to sign tomorrow morning, and will be available for tomorrow evening's match with Leicester City.

Johnson joined Leeds in January from Northampton Town for £250,000 - despite interest from several Championship clubs - and was a regular at Elland Road last season.

He featured in all three playoff matches in May, and made five appearances for Leeds this season before falling out of favour at the start of September.

Albion boss Micky Adams said, "We're delighted Bradley has agreed to join us on loan until the New Year. He is a six-foot-plus attacking midfielder who can play either centrally or on the wing and is also capable of scoring a goal.

"With Glenn and Nicky injured, our priority has always been to bring in a striker, and it remains so - but that does not prohibit us from improving other areas of the team and I am sure Bradley's arrival will improve the squad.

"Bradley is cup tied in the Carling Cup and the Johnstone's Paints Trophy, but he will still play a major role over the next three months."

Johnson scored eight times last season - three times for Leeds and five goals for Northampton. He began his career as a trainee at Cambridge United, before moving to Sixfields.
