Last updated : 26 July 2005 By Kevin Markey

The Angolan international agreed personal terms last week and underwent a medical over the weekend.

"We're halfway though the medical at this stage and we are just waiting for one or two details and then we'll do it," said Kevin Blackwell on the official Leeds United website.

"I have got some decent centre-halves; Gregan and Butler were solid against Celtic, Matthew Kilgallon and Clarke Carlisle have not put a foot wrong either and then there's Simon Walton who can also play for me there. so I am blessed in that position.

"We now have a stronger squad than I ever envisaged a year or even six months ago."
