Dean Windass believes that Harrison Reed has the right attributes to become a Leeds player.
The midfielder has just been relegated by Fulham but was one of their few outstanding performers last season and will no doubt want to continue playing in the top-flight.
Would Anderson be a good signing for Leeds United?
According to the Daily Mail, Marcelo Bielsa has been impressed with the 26-year-old, and is interested in signing him this summer as Leeds look to build on their ninth-place finish.
Reed, described as ‘tireless’ and a ‘terrier’ by The Times, came through the ranks at Southampton but was never given a fair first-team crack at St Mary’s and spent time on loan with Norwich, Blackburn, and Fulham before joining the latter permanently 12 months ago.
He appeared 31 times in the Premier League for Fulham last season, missing all but two of those through injury, chipping in with two assists as the Londoners continued their unwanted pattern of being either relegated or promoted in each of the last four seasons.
Asked whether he’d be a good fit for Leeds, Windass exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“You can see that, he’s young as well. I think he’s an athlete and that’s what you’ve got to be when you play for Leeds.
“Reed is a good player, from Fulham, who’ve been relegated, and every player wants to play in the Premier League, so that would be a good fit.”
