Skysports.com understands Leeds are leading the race for Cardiff striker Ross McCormack.
Cardiff are thought to be willing to offload McCormack following the arrival of Craig Bellamy and the Scotland international is keen on a move away in search of regular first-team football.
McCormack has fallen down the pecking order at Cardiff despite scoring 23 goals in his debut season at the club following his arrival from Motherwell.
A number of clubs have expressed an interest in signing McCormack, but Leeds are hoping to lure the 24-year-old to Elland Road.
Leeds are understood have agreed a fee with Cardiff for McCormack as they look to bolster their attacking options before the close of the transfer window.
McCormack's agent, Willie McKay, has confirmed Leeds have been given permission to hold talks, but that other clubs are also in the race for the skilful forward's signature.
"We have been given permission to speak to Leeds as well as two other clubs about Ross," McKay told skysports.com.
"We will be holding talks with those clubs later this week."
