Leeds United are keen to hand a permanent deal to trialist Mathieu Baudry, providing the price is right.
The Frenchman has been training with the Whites for the last 10 days and has left a positive impression on boss Simon Grayson.
The 21-year-old is under contract with Troyes AC for another two seasons but, following their relegation into the third tier of French football, he has a clause in his contract allowing him to speak to other clubs.
He caught the eye during a recent pre-season run-out against Grimsby and Leeds are now keen to reach an agreement which will see Baudry move to Elland Road on a full-time basis.
"We're speaking to the player and the club," Grayson told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"It's something we have to make a final decision on depending on the fee or the arrangement that we're able to come to.
"He's an option for us but we're not going to pay over the odds for people or make any rash decisions.
"I think he did well in the game at Grimsby and the 10 days that he trained with us.
"He's only young at 21 but he's got a bit about him and if the right deal can be struck then it's a possibility."
