Both Leeds United and Middlesbrough have had offers for Bristol City star Joe Bryan rejected by the Championship club this summer, according to HITC Sport.

The media outlet claims Boro, Hull City and the Whites are all keen on the left-back and have made enquiries about a possible move.

However, Bristol City have reportedly rejected the advances from the trio and are keen to keep the 23-year-old at the club.

Leeds have undergone significant overhaul this summer, with new manager Thomas Christiansen bringing in a host of new players to the Yorkshire outfit.

The Elland Road outfit have parted company with Charlie Taylor after his contract expired, with the defender joining Burnley and robbing the Whites of a left-back.

While Gaetano Berardi is an excellent option to be first choice in the position next season, landing an out-and-out left-back like Bryan would be a shrewd move for Leeds.

Garry Monk is desperate to rebuild the Middlesbrough squad he inherited this summer and sees the Robins’ product as an ideal player that can help them with their charge for promotion back to the Premier League.

The Riverside Stadium outfit have spent big this summer already and landing Bryan would be another impressive addition for the north east outfit.

Hull want to add the defender to their ranks after increased speculation in Andy Robertson has continued to mount, with Premier League interest from the likes of Liverpool being rumoured.

However, despite all the interest in Bryan, it will remain to be seen if Bristol City will be forced to sell one of their star men, as they also look to push on within the Championship.

Having come through the Robins academy, Bryan is highly thought of as one of the best left-backs within England’s second tier division and has proven he can play in a variety of different positions for the Ashton Gate outfit.

Making his debut in 2012 as a teenager, he has gone on to make nearly 200 appearances for the senior side, playing primarily as a left-back, but also being utilised as a left-sided wing-back or as a midfielder.

The ability he has shown on that side of the pitch has intensified the interest in him, with both Leeds and Middlesbrough having needs of their own that signing Bryan could address.
