Championship promotion chasers Leeds United are keeping a close eye on the situation with Cardiff City winger Kadeem Harris, according to The Sun.

It is no secret that Marcelo Bielsa is looking to improve his squad both in January, and then again in the summer, for what he hopes will be his side’s first season back in the Premier League.

He has been linked with a number of players both domestically and overseas, and that is likely to continue until the transfer window reopens.

Harris has made a big impression at the Cardiff City Stadium this season, making strong showings in their two wins over Fulham and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 25-year-old moved to Wales from Wycombe Wanderers in 2012, but has had to be patient to get his big chance. He went on loan spells at Brentford and Barnsley, but has impressed Neil Warnock enough in training to finally push for a place in his side.

Despite his positive showings for the Bluebirds this term, the winger is out of contract in the summer and could leave Cardiff for free if no extension is agreed. He would be allowed to start talking to potential new clubs in January, which is why Leeds are keeping a keen eye on the situation.

If the Whites are to get the attacker, they are going to need to act swiftly and decisively, as they are not the only ones who have their attention on him.

Leeds’ Championship rivals Aston Villa are also believed to have an interest in signing the former Wycombe star, while Bolton Wanderers have also got him on their radar.

Given the position of the Elland Road side in the second tier, at this stage you would think they would lead the way to sign Harris, but ultimately that could all depend on whether they make it back to the Premier League or not.
