Now, the Daily Mail report that Leeds have made a decision to go through with a deal for Ideguchi in January, though work permit issues mean that he will be loaned out to another European club when his expected January move goes through.
As such, Leeds plan to loan him out to a European suitor, with the 21-year-old's worldwide appearances for Japan failing to meet the quota set by the lawmakers. "There are opinions that it is better to wait six months (until after the World Cup) but I want to go there without being influenced by people's opinions".
The deal between Leeds and Osaka is believed to be worth around £500,000 including bonuses.

Some experts have suggested that due to Holi, CBSE Boards 2018 would start a day or two ahead of the typical date of March 1. After clicking on link "Examinations" you should click on the link displaying the text "Examination related materials'".
Ideguchi will join the Championship side in January, but will be sent out on loan in Europe as he will not yet be eligible for a work permit.
Asano also failed to qualify for a work permit and moved on a temporary to Bundesliga club Stuttgart a month after arriving at the Emirates.
FA work permit regulations, which were revised in 2015, require non-EU players from nations ranked inside the world's top 50 to have played up to 75 per cent of senior internationals in the previous two years. Japan are 55th in FIFA's current rankings and Ideguchi falls short of that figure.
With eight caps for Japan too, Ideguchi looks set for a key role for his country at the World Cup, and Leeds have sensibly moved quickly to land him before he hits the world stage - and will now hope that he can make his Whites debut next season.
