A man currently on the staff at West Ham United is allegedly attracting the interest of Leeds United.

According to a report from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United have approached Martyn Glover to become their head of player recruitment.

Glover currently holds that position at West Ham United and it is being reported that Leeds want to move for Glover after owner Massimo Cellino pulled out of a deal to bring Steve Head in for the same role.

Following Uwe Rosler’s appointment as Leeds’ new manager earlier this month there continue to be a number of changes and Glover could be the latest if he agrees to the move.

Although he is currently on the staff at West Ham, the report claims Sam Allardyce’s departure as Hammers manager will see a number of other changes at Upton Park prior to the new campaign.

Whoever takes on the role at Elland Road, it will be vital in ensuring Leeds sign the best players as they attempt to get back into the top flight after so long away.

While they have a number of promising young players coming through the ranks they will know that is not enough in itself, with quality new additions – both young and more experienced – vital as Rosler attempts to earn promotion in his debut campaign.
