Leeds United are reportedly trying to sign wingers Martyn Woolford and Ben Pringle from Millwall and Rotherham respectively.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United are interested in signing Martyn Woolford and Ben Pringle from Millwall and Rotherham respectively.

Leeds have been playing a narrow diamond in midfield for much of the season, but it's clear now that manager Neil Redfearn wants to add some width to his team.

The Yorkshire Evening Post believe that Leeds have lined up two wingers from rival Championship clubs in the hope of bringing at least one in before Monday's transfer deadline.

The first is Millwall's Martyn Woolford. The Castleford-born winger is no stranger to West Yorkshire, and could make a return if Leeds get their way.

The 29-year-old left footer made his name with Scunthorpe United, before earning a 2011 move to Bristol City, where he scored four goals in 59 games.

2013 saw him move on to Millwall, and with 12 goals in 73 games, he's impressed for the Lions, but is out of contract at the end of this season - meaning Ian Holloway's men may be open to a deal for the hard working winger.

The other name linked with a move to Elland Road is Rotherham United's Ben Pringle. Another left footed winger who is out of contract at the end of this season, the 25-year-old didn't make the grade with West Bromwich Albion earlier in his career, and having impressed in non-league with Ilkeston Town, he signed for Derby County in 2009.

With just 23 appearances to his name, Pringle moved on to Rotherham in 2011, and with 21 goals to his name for the Millers in his stay there, Pringle has become a fan favourite.

Known for his superb crossing ability, Pringle would be an asset to Leeds, but their Yorkshire rivals are likely to fight hard to keep him - even if he could leave for free in the summer.

News of Leeds pursuing two wide players will be a welcome boost to fans, who have been crying out for width all season - and in two natural, left footed wingers, it seems that Redfearn has the right idea.

With just days to go until the transfer deadline, Leeds are in a race against time to land winger - but appear to have two clear targets.
