Dominic Iorfa has been told that he is surplus to requirements at Wolverhampton Wanderers, as per The Birmingham Mail.
Football League scouts are watching Iorfa and Ethan Ebanks-Landell, who are available for a January move.
And Leeds United need to consider a swoop for Iorfa, who could provide cover across the defence.
Leeds are in the midst of an injury crisis in defence. And with little depth to their squad, they have had to rely on players operating out of position and youngsters coming through the ranks.
At the moment, Pontus Jansson, Gaetano Berardi and Luke Ayling are all missing.
There are no senior right-backs available, leaving winger Stuart Dallas and central midfielder Jamie Shackleton scrapping it out for that spot.
And Liam Cooper is the only fit senior centre-half, with youngster Aapo Halme or central midfielder Kalvin Phillips playing alongside him.
Leeds need cover at both right-back and centre-back and versatile defender Iorfa can play in both positions.
The 23-year-old used to be a regular for Wolves but has dropped down the pecking order in the last couple of seasons.
With the ex-England under-21 international’s career stalling, a loan or permanent move to the Championship could be on the cards.
Leeds need a player like Iorfa to pad out their defensive department in case of more injuries.
