Leeds United appear to be trying to bolster their defensive ranks as the January transfer window enters its final stages.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side currently sit at the top of the Championship table and it is understood the Argentine is keen to bring some experience to his squad.
And, according to a report by The Daily Mail, AFC Bournemouth’s Tyrone Mings appears to be on The Whites’ radar this winter.
Leeds are thought to have made an enquiry about taking the Premier League man on loan, with Eddie Howe believed to be happy to sanction a move for a player currently out of his plans at The Vitality Stadium.
However, Bielsa’s side will face some competition for the 25-year-old’s signature, with Championship rivals West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest all keen on Mings.
Mings could be an excellent addition to the Leeds squad as they look to win promotion to the Premier League.
Bielsa’s side have struggled with injuries and suspensions in the back line this season and the 25-year-old has plenty of experience that could benefit The Whites.
However, with a number of clubs thought to be interested in the defender, Leeds could have a serious battle on their hands to land him before Thursday’s deadline.
