Lee Peltier: Leicester City full-back is a target for Leeds United manager Neil Warnock
Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has confirmed he has made an enquiry for Leicester City defender Lee Peltier as he searches for a new right-back.
Warnock has enjoyed an active week in the transfer market, and is still trying to strengthen both his defence and attack.
Sky Sports revealed earlier this week that Leeds had shown an interest in signing Peltier, who only joined Leicester from Huddersfield last summer.
Peltier's former club Huddersfield, managed by ex-Whites boss Simon Grayson, are also keen, and Warnock is waiting to see what develops.
"We've made enquiries about a few," said Warnock on the club's official website.
"There's three on the radar and Lee is one of them so we'll see what happens. I'm sure we'll pull a full-back in over the next week."
Leeds have also confirmed that Rodolph Austin has signed his contract to join from Brann, but must go to his native Jamaica to finalise some paperwork before linking up with his new team-mates.
