Leeds keeping tabs on Lewis Macleod

Leeds keeping tabs on Lewis Macleod

Leeds United are thought to be keeping tabs on one of their Championship rival’s players as contract talks have apparently broken down.

According to a report in The Scottish Sun, Lewis Macleod has turned down a new deal with Brentford, with his current terms set to expire in the summer.

That has allegedly alerted Leeds, who are thought to be monitoring the situation regarding the midfielder.

The 24-year-old, who is also believed to have attracted interest from former club Rangers, is keen to keep his options open and if he decides against signing a new deal, a January move could become a likely scenario.

Macleod has been riddled with injuries during his time at Brentford, having been able to make just 25 appearances in the three years he has been at Griffin Park.

He has since been able to kick on with his career at the Bees this season under Dean Smith, prior to the manager’s move to Aston Villa.

The Verdict:

Macleod has finally been able to put his injury nightmares behind him and has shown glimpses of what he can offer, which could make him an excellent addition for Leeds.

The midfielder, who has netted twice and assisted once in his 13 Championship games, could add some much-needed depth to Marcelo Bielsa’s side in an area that has been lacking options at times this season due to injury.

Leeds may also have an advantage over the likes of Rangers should they look to add the 24-year-old, as the Light Blues have a number of options already available to them and he may fancy the chance at playing in the Premier League, should the Whites continue their form under Bielsa.
