Leeds lead the race to sign Demarai Gray from Leicester City, according to a report from the Daily Mirror (5/1; page 47).
Gray is attracting a lot of attention despite only playing once in the Premier League this season. That is because his contract reportedly expires in the summer.
The Daily Mirror claims that he feels that he has no long-term future at the King Power Stadium. And a host of clubs are now monitoring his situation.
West Brom, Southampton and Sheffield United are all keen on the 24-year-old. But the Daily Mirror (5/1; page 47) claims that Leeds lead the race.
It is suggested that Marcelo Bielsa is keen to sign the winger. But it remains to be seen if they decide to make a move in this window or wait until the summer when he will be available on a free.
It may concern some that Gray has played so little this season. However, given that he would be available on a free transfer, it is surely something of a no-brainer to make a move.
Gray – who earns £55,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – has shown glimpses of his outstanding talent during his time with Leicester, as well as with Birmingham before that.
And if he joins Leeds, and clicks with Bielsa’s methods, then he could prove to be a fantastic signing.
