Leeds however are also looking to tie up a deal for another Cardiff City player Gavin Rae, Cardiff City boss Dave Jones has revealed that the Yorkshire club are holding talks with the midfielder.
The midfielder joined Cardiff City from Dundee in 2007 and has since made 131 appearances and scored seven goals. United have been looking for a potential replacement in the centre of midfielder after not following up on Michael Doyle after a yearlong loan from Coventry City.
Another potential loan target of Simon Graysons is Manchester City’s young Belgian defender Dedryck Boyata who is highly rated at Eastland’s but unlikely to feature due to the 25 man squad limit.
Ex West Ham defender Calum Davenport is currently on trial at the Yorkshire side and will be looking to impress and earn himself a full contract. The English defender also had trials at Nottingham Forest earlier on this summer but wasn’t offered a contract.
