Skysports.com understands Neil Kilkenny is in talks with Bristol City over a possible move to Ashton Gate.
Kilkenny is available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at Leeds earlier this summer.
The Australia international rejected the offer of a new deal at Elland Road and a number of clubs have been chasing his signature.
Hull City and Nottingham Forest have expressed an interest in Kilkenny, but it appears Bristol City have beaten their Championship rivals to land the 25-year-old.
Kilkenny's signature would be a massive coup for Robins boss Keith Millen as he looks to build a side capable of winning promotion.
