Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Sheffield Wednesday defender Osaze Urhoghide this summer.
The next transfer window could potentially be a busy one at Elland Road, as Marcelo Bielsa looks to further fine-tune his squad ahead of next season.
Leeds have enjoyed a more-than-adequate return to the Premier League, currently sitting 11th in the table, but the aim is to repeat that feat next year, or preferably better it.
The Whites could make additions all over the pitch, but one transfer rumour that has emerged claims they are eyeing up a versatile defender.
Leeds keen on Urhoghide move
According to the Sheffield Star, Wednesday youngster Urhoghide is considered an option for Leeds, as they look to snatch away an exciting player from their local rivals.
The 20-year-old is out of contract at Hillsborough at the end of the season, so the Whites could snap him up on a free transfer.
Urhoghide is capable of playing at centre-back or in either of the full-back spots, making nine Championship starts for the struggling Owls this season.
Transfer Tavern take
It is always good to see Leeds linked with talented young English players and Urhoghide fits into that category, having made a name for himself with Wednesday.
His versatility could also come in handy, allowing him to fill in across several positions and hopefully mature as a player under Bielsa’s tutelage.
That versatility, youth and the fact he is available for free makes him a low risk high reward signing from Director of Football Victor Orta, if it goes through.
In other news, a key Leeds player is believed to be attracting interest from other clubs. Find out who it is here.
