Skysports.com understands that Leeds United have enquired about the availability of Coventry City captain Sammy Clingan.
The Whites are keen to bolster their midfield numbers following the summer departures of Neil Kilkenny and Bradley Johnson, although they have brought in experienced schemer Michael Brown.
The Northern Ireland international began his career with Wolves before going on to play for Chesterfield, Nottingham Forest and Norwich before joining the Ricoh Arena outfit.
The 27-year-old has one year left on his Sky Blues deal and Coventry might be willing to broker a deal this summer rather than lose his services for free at the end of the campaign.
Leeds United's assistant manager Glynn Snodin knows all about Clingan's ability having assisted Northern Ireland head coach Nigel Worthington in the summer of 2007.
