According to transfer source Dean Jones, incoming Leeds man Brenden Aaronson is "extremely vital" to Jesse Marsch's plans at Elland Road.
The Yorkshire giants have been after the Salzburg ace since January and are about to make him their first summer acquisition.
What's the most recent Aaronson news?
Leeds' hopes of signing the American this summer were always going to hinge on whether they stayed in the Premier League after missing out on getting him in the winter due to the Austrian club's refusal to sell the midfielder before the Champions League knockout stages began.
With Burnley's defeat to Newcastle, Marsch's side finished above the bottom three.

And, only hours after the final whistle in west London, The Athletic reports that Leeds are close to landing Aaronson, who will be Marsch's first signing since taking over from Marcelo Bielsa.
Leeds had bids of £15 million and £20 million rejected in January, and are now poised to pay around £28 million to Salzburg.
Aaronson's move to the Premier League will also reunite him with Marsch, who he played with last season in Austria.
What was Jones' take on Aaronson?
"If they can get Brenden Aaronson through the door quickly," he told GIVEMESPORT, "that's a player who's very, very crucial to where Jesse Marsch wants to take this squad."

Why is Aaronson so important to Leeds?
It's easy to see why Leeds are so interested in getting Aaronson to Elland Road.
In 65 appearances for Salzburg, he has contributed 13 goals and 15 assists, with 16 of those goal involvements coming last season as his side reached the last 16 of the Champions League and won their ninth Bundesliga title on the bounce.
Meanwhile, Leeds’ need for a creative player comes after they scored just 42 goals in the top-flight this term, with only the bottom three and Wolves finding the net fewer, especially with Raphinha, who was involved in 30 per cent of the goals, being linked to Barcelona.
