Jason Cummings would be a season defining signing for Leeds, and Lee Erwin should be offered to Hibs in exchange

Leeds should do all they can to tempt Jason Cummings to Elland Road.

The Sun reported last week that Jason Cummings of Hibs is a transfer target for Championship side Leeds United.

The 20-year-old forward has been in prolific form this season, scoring 14 goals in 20 games across all competitions, and it is no surprise their is transfer interest in him.

However, Cummings is not just another run of the mill forward, and he could be a season defining signing for Leeds.

Steve Evans should do all he can to tempt Cummings to Elland Road in January, as the forward has all the talents to excel in the Championship.

He is fast and nimble with the ball at his feet, and possesses a real eye for goal when in the opposition penalty area.

He could prosper in Evans' system, playing as the goal poacher alongside the more physical target man in Chris Wood, and he would inject dynamism into a team which has looked predictable this season.

Hibs will not be keen on selling Cummings, as he is their main forward, but Leeds could offer one of their own players to the Scottish side to entice a deal.

Lee Erwin arrived at Leeds form Motherwell over the summer, but has so far played just two games for the Whites - both as a sub. He has also spent a three-game loan spell with Bury, and it appears as if he is still not ready for playing at Leeds.

He could be the perfect bait to offer to Hibs in exchange for Cummings, as he has a proven goal record in Scotland, and has performed at a Premiership level - something which Cummings has not done.

Cummings would be a season defining signing for Leeds, and bringing him in would guarantee Evans a consistent source of goals, and offering Erwin out would finally show that even he has a use for Leeds this term.
