According to reports in Italy Leeds United are interested in Palermo midfielder Granddi N’Goyi.

So for those Leeds fans eager to know more about the player, here are five facts to get you started:

2) While in the French capital, the majority of his senior career was spent out on loan, where he played for Clermont Foot, Brest and Nantes.

3) He left PSG for Troyes in a permanent deal in 2012 and would sign for Italian club Palermo a year later, where he has made 27 appearances to date.

4) The 26-year-old is a defensive midfielder who can also operate as a centre-back if required, and this versatility could be what appeals to Leeds. He has scored four goals and provided six assists in his senior career to date.

5) N’Goyi has represented France’s under-21 side six times and their under-19 side on four occasions.
