Leeds United are expected to make wholesale changes to their squad this summer, however, the latest name to be rumoured with a move to Yorkshire will get the fans in the Transfer Tavern excited should it happen.
Paul Heckingbottom will look to use the transfer window as a way to make his mark with the side, having inherited it from Thomas Christiansen, and he could bring in a Scottish ace which would help him achieve exactly that.
The Scottish Sun are claiming that the Elland Road outfit are interested in bringing Hibernian’s John McGinn. The midfielder has proven to be one of the better players in the Scottish Premiership and has attracted plenty of interest, with the likes of Rangers also considering an approach.
It is believed a fee of £5million would be enough to lure him away from Easter Road and will surely ensure a bidding war between a number of clubs. Indeed, Heckingbottom himself is thought to view the Scottish international as ideal for his side.
Should Heckingbottom be able to complete a move for McGinn, he would be immediately improving his squad and be within a real chance of getting promotion to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old has proven he can play at a competitive level for a good side and Leeds will be hopeful they can beat their opponents for the race to his signature in what would be considered a signing of the year candidate.
The locals will be concerned by the interest being shown in him from bigger sides but will hope they can convince him to join them where he would be more likely to play in every match possible.
