Sky Sports understands Leeds have made an enquiry about taking Bolton defender Paul Robinson on loan.
Leeds boss Neil Warnock has made defensive reinforcements his top priority since taking over at Elland Road and Robinson is on his list of targets.
Robinson is thought to be available on loan this month after finding himself down the pecking order at the Reebok Stadium in recent weeks.
This news has alerted a host of Championship clubs to Robinson's availability, with Southampton and Burnley also expressing an interest in the full-back.
However, Leeds are hoping to steal a march on their Championship rivals by luring Robinson to Elland Road as Warnock looks to bolster his squad before this weekend's visit of high-flying Southampton.
