    Will in Indirect speech

    He said that he will be discuss about it today.
    He told me that he would be discussed about it today.

    I am not sure how to use the verb 'will' in this. Please explain it.

    Both sentences are wrong. For a start, we don't "discuss about something", we simply "discuss something". "Discuss" means "to talk about".

    He told me/said that he will discuss it [later] today.
    He told me/said that he would discuss it [later] today.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
