DOUGIE Freedman has confirmed that Wanderers are closing in on a £1million deal for Leicester City's Jermaine Beckford.

The 29-year-old has been at the club for a medical today and has agreed terms on a two-year deal.

Speaking this afternoon, the Whites boss said: “We are very close with Jermaine. He's someone I have worked with before, played with, and a proven goalscorer who I think will be very good for this football club.

“We are not quite there but I do have a gentleman's handshake on it, which goes a long way for me.

“It's just a couple of small bits and pieces that we need to tidy up.”
