FL transfer latest: Leeds target ex-Premier League midfielder; Forest and Wednesday feature

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United chase Steven Reid, Sheffield Wednesday want former Dundee defender, Nottingham Forest keen on Hull City striker, Leicester City interested in Brighton and Hove Albion's Player of the Year and Bournemouth eye up Coventry City striker.

We take a look at the transfer stories surrounding Football League clubs in the last 24-hours. 

1) Leeds United amongst three interested in out-of-contract midfielder Steven Reid

According to Sky Sports, Leeds United along with Burnley, Queens Park Rangers and Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in former Premier League midfielder Steven Reid. 

The 33-year-old is said to be waiting on a West Brom hiring a new coach before making a decision, despite now having the freedom to talk to other clubs.

Leeds face tricky competition if they're to land the former Republic of Ireland international. However, it has to be said that his experience around the club could be vital next season.

2) Sheffield Wednesday want Gavin Gunning 

Sheffield Wednesday are interested in former Dundee United defender Gavin Gunning, according to reports in the Courier.

The former Blackburn Rovers defender reacted in frustration to a comment made by the press regarding what Dundee United had done for his career, saying: 'Yeah, I have done a lot for the club as well, so there you go.

'You never know what is around the corner. I will have to speak to my family about it and then we will go from there.' 

Wednesday are said to be one of the clubs interested in the talented former Republic of Ireland under-21 defender. 

3) Nottingham Forest keen on Hull City's Matty Fryatt

According to a report in the Nottingham Post, Hull City striker Matty Fryatt is one of the men on Stuart Pearce's list of potential transfer targets, as he looks to bolster his Nottingham Forest firepower.

The 28-year-old was handed a rare start in the FA Cup final due to first-team strikers Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long cup-tied. Nevertheless, the striker was often crowded out by the Arsenal defence and rarely got the chance to impose his game. 

The signing of Fryatt could indicate Nottingham Forest owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi is once again going to put his hand in his pocket in order to give Forest a fighting chance of promotion. 

4) Leicester interested in Brighton's Player of the Year

Newly-promoted Leicester City are looking at bringing in Brighton defender Matthew Upson as they look to build a squad ready for the Premier League. 

The 35-year-old central defender has been a consistent performer for Brighton over the past couple of years; however, questions will be asked by Leicester supporters to whether he still has the legs for the Premier League. 

On paper, the 21-capped England star looks a little over the hill for Premier League football, but Nigel Pearson has shown in the past he will take a chance on older professionals if he thinks they're good enough.

5) Bournemouth line up Coventry City striker Callum Wilson

According to reports, Bournemouth are ready to use the cash windfall from departing striker Lewis Grabban on highly-rated Coventry City striker Callum Wilson.

According to Sky Sports, the 22-year-old is being outlined as the number one name to replace the outgoing Cherries top goalscorer. 

Earlier in the month, Nottingham Forest were linked with a £3 million pound move for Wilson, so it would potentially be the clubs biggest transfer transaction in their history.
