Leeds United are in the race to sign Bristol City midfield maestro Josh Brownhill, according to Sky Sports (Friday 7th June, 09:56).
The Whites aren’t the only interested party. They join Brighton, Sheffield United and Derby County monitoring the central midfielder.
Brownhill was a standout performer for the Robins during 2018/19. He played 49 games in the middle of the park scoring six goals and creating four assists.
His energetic style outweighs his goal contribution, however, and the work he puts in for his team shouldn’t be dismissed.
Brownhill joined Bristol following his release by Preston North End in 2016. He has been a regular under Lee Johnson, making 132 appearances for the club.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa will be keen to bolster his ranks this summer and Brownhill would represent a promising addition to his squad.
Brownhill might not be known for his contribution to goals but his work rate and passing qualities would make him a quality addition.
Signing him won’t be easy. The Premier League could be a tempting proposition should Sheffield United or Brighton come calling.
Leeds proved their top-flight ambitions last season, however, and the chance to be part of something special at Elland Road might tempt Brownhill.
The 23-year-old would fit in nicely with the current crop of Leeds talent.
Bielsa willingly played the younger players during his first season at the club and Brownhill seems like the perfect signing for the Whites.
