As reported by Kicker, 24-year-old defender Robin Koch has informed his teammates that he’ll be leaving Freiburg’s training camp in Austria this evening as a move to Leeds United beckons.

Both Leeds United and Freiburg have agreed a transfer fee in the region of €13 million plus future incentives.
