Football League transfer latest: Leeds look at two defenders, Derby and Cardiff involved

Adam Le Fondre

Leeds United, Sheffield United, Cardiff City and Derby County all feature.

We take a look at the five biggest transfer stories to be released regarding Football League clubs in the past 24-hours.

1) Leeds United interested in Harry Maguire and Dean Moxey

Leeds United are looking to sign both Sheffield United's Harry Maguire and Crystal Palace's Dean Moxey this summer, according to reports. 

Harry Maguire picked up his third consecutive Sheffield United Player of the Year award this season, but now looks likely to be on his way out of the exit after rumours suggesting he will sign a new deal at the club were quickly dismissed by 'sources close to the player'. On the other hand, Dean Moxey is free to look for a new club due to his contract at Crystal Palace expiring this summer. 

2) Wigan Athletic and Huddersfield have been told it will take 750k to sign Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly told suitors wanting to sign their 21-year-old highly-rated midfielder that it will take less than a million to prize him away from White Hart Lane. 

The Spurs starlet was nominated for the Football League Young Player of the Year award last season, which eventually won by £15m-rated Will Hughes, so the asking price is incredibly reasonable. Nevertheless, Huddersfield Town could be priced out due to the financial fair play regulations, leaving Wigan Athletic a seemingly straight run at the player. 

3) George Thorne wants Derby County move, according to Rams President Sam Rush.

West Bromwich Albion midfielder George Thorne could make a permanent move to loan side Derby County this summer, after Sam Rush admitted the player was gunning for a move back to the iPro Stadium. 

Thorne played a huge part in Derby County's last 12 games and made a huge mark on supporters during his short time. The Rams won nine of the 12 games he played in and he was considered, by many supporters, as their best player for the final 1/4 of the season. 

4) Huddersfield and Rotherham to battle for out-of-contract Newcastle United defender Tavernier

The 22-year-old former Leeds United academy product has been in fine form this season whilst on-loan at Rotherham and despite his contract ending in Tyneside, he may still have an array of clubs to choose from. 

Rotherham are unsurprisingly interested in one of their star men from last season; however, Huddersfield Town can afford to offer more than their Yorkshire rivals. Nevertheless, Rotherham will still fancy their chances of landing the right-back, especially after such a successful spell last season. 

5) Cardiff City sign Adam Le Fondre from Reading

Notorious Championship goalscorer Adam Le Fondre, yesterday, completed his move to Cardiff City from Reading on a three-year deal. The 27-year-old found himself in and out the Reading side last season, but still finished the clubs top goalscorer with an impressive 15-goals. 

The former Rotherham striker will be hopeful of helping the Bluebirds bounce back to the Premier League on their first attempt.
