Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Brentford midfielder Lewis Macleod.
According to the Scottish Sun, the 24-year-old has turned down a contract offer with Championship outfit Brentford and his current deal expires next summer.
The report details that the Whites and also his former club Rangers are monitoring the player’s situation.
Macleod’s future appears to lie away from Griffin Park, so should Leeds ramp up their interest in him to try seal his move to Elland Road quickly?
Macleod is a technically gifted ace that has played an important role so far this campaign for an impressive Brentford side and proven he can make a difference in the Championship.
The central midfielder has been directly involved in four goals already this season and can provide some creativity from the centre of the park.
Leeds currently have Kalvin Phillips, Mateuesz Klich, Lewis Baker and Adam Forshaw as their main options in the midfield.
Manager Marcelo Bielsa has already had to deal with a spate of injuries due to the intense work-rate on the players and they could need an extra body in January to help cover for a promotion bid.
Macleod is a tidy footballer that should tick a lot of boxes for Bielsa and it could be worth approaching for his signature in January rather than waiting to pursue a free transfer in the summer.
