Sheffield Wednesday defender attracting Newcastle interest

McClarenSheffield Wednesday supporting punters in the Transfer Tavern have been banging the drum over the form of central defender Tom Leeds of late and his performances so far this season have suggested he is among the top defenders in the league.

The Owls faithful won’t be happy with an article in The Mirror found by one punter over by the jukebox, that suggests Lees is a top January transfer target for Newcastle United and Norwich City.

Lees’ form this season has seen Wednesday thrust themselves into contention for a play-off place in the Championship and he has also been instrumental in their run to the quarter-final of the Capital One Cup.

The 24-year-old was used primarily as a right-back at former club Leeds United but has now found a home at the heart of Wednesday’s back four.

The Tavern’s landlord is the knowledge of all football and having seen Lees play for Wednesday this season he thinks it is only a matter of time before he is gracing the Premier League.

Newcastle fans… Would you welcome Lees? Can he improve your faltering back line? Norwich fans… Is Lees the sort of player you need?
