Leeds are thought to be considering a move for Middlesbrough’s Marcus Tavernier in January, according to TEAMtalk.
The Lowdown: Tavernier profiled
Primarily a left midfielder, most of Tavernier’s appearances during the current campaign have come as a right-winger, and it seems this ability to add depth in multiple positions is catching the eye at Elland Road.
How many signings should Leeds make in January?
The Latest: Whites considering January move
TEAMtalk shared a report on Tuesday lunchtime, suggesting the Whites are considering a winter window move for Tavernier, with Victor Orta a confirmed fan of the player labelled as ‘special’ by Neil Warnock.
Brighton, Burnley and Southampton have been watching the Englishman for some time, but it seems as if Leeds are now in the race for Tavernier’s services.
The Verdict: Dallas 2.0?
Should Leeds secure Tavernier’s services in the New Year, they could have another Stuart Dallas on their hands.
Marcelo Bielsa also likes to run with a small squad, so bringing in a player as versatile as Dallas could be of interest to the Argentine, who could then look to coach Tavernier in multiple positions.
