Leeds United and Crystal Palace have been linked with a move for Dundee United defender Kerr Smith, The Daily Record report.
The Lowdown: Palace win Gallagher race
It’s not the first time both the Whites and the Eagles have been linked with the same player.
Leeds wanted to bring Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher to Elland Road on loan, and a deal appeared to be getting closer.
It appears as if Marcelo Bielsa and Patrick Vieira’s sides could do battle in the market again, this time for Kerr, who was described as ‘fantastic’ by Tangerines defender Mark Conolly earlier this year.
How many more signings do Leeds need this summer?
The Latest: Kerr interest
The Daily Record claim that Leeds and Palace, along with Southampton, all remain keen on the centre-back.
The Verdict: Another academy addition?
Leeds have been fairly busy this summer when it comes to bolstering their academy ranks, and you’d expect Kerr would link up with the club’s Under-23’s, should a move materialise.
Lewis Bate has arrived from Chelsea, Amari Miller from Birmingham City and Sean McGurk from Wigan Athletic, so Kerr could be the fourth youth addition.
The Whites will need to get one back on Palace, though, as well as Southampton, if they are to win the race for the Scot.
