Wednesday have lost out in the race to sign Portsmouth midfielder David Norris with Leeds United set to complete his signing.


The Owls had been battling with their Yorkshire rivals for the former Plymouth Argyle man but Norris is set to join the Elland Road club subject to passing a medical.


Owls boss Dave Jones was keen on the experienced midfield man and it’s understood Norris held talks with Wednesday over a move to Hillsborough.


But Leeds looks set to be his destination and a deal is expected to be completed within 24 hours, meaning Jones will have to turn his attentions elsewhere as he bolsters his squad for the new campaign.
