Sunderland and Hull City are believed to be keeping tabs on Leeds United's Frazer Richardson.

The Rotherham-born defender has shown his versatility for The Whites this term with the youngster often being asked to play a midfield role by Kevin Blackwell.

Sunderland are keen to bolster their ranks following promotion to The Premiership while Hull need reinforcements to retain their Championship status next term.

Richardson is contracted to Leeds until the summer of 2006 and the club may opt to raise funds for Blackwell this summer by selling the right back.

The 22-year-old's only goal for The Whites came on the opening day of the season as his strike earned Leeds a 1-0 win over Derby at Elland Road.
