Sky Sports understands Leeds are eyeing a move for Leicester ace Richie Wellens as they look to bolster their squad.
Leeds boss Simon Grayson is seeking a replacement for Norwich-bound Jonny Howson and Wellens is thought to be on his wanted list.
Grayson is hoping to have money to spend from the sale of Howson and he is considering using some of the funds to make a move for Wellens.
Grayson is a big admirer of Wellens having worked with the midfield playmaker during his time in charge of Blackpool and believes he would be a valuable addition to his side.
Leicester would be reluctant to lose Wellens, but they could be persuaded to cash-in on the 31-year-old after bringing in Danny Drinkwater from Manchester United last week to bolster their midfield options
