Leeds United prospect Sam Byram's future is no closer to being resolved, with his contract set to expire in June.
Liverpool are among those showing an interest, The Sun reported a fortnight ago, and their current injury crisis could only increase their desire to sign a player capable of playing in both defence and midfield.
Leeds at least do not have to sell now, and can gamble on the figure they would receive at a tribunal this summer.
Here are three players they could demand from Liverpool as part of a deal, most likely on loan deals until the end of the season.
Jerome Sinclair made his Liverpool debut at 16, but has been on the fringes of the first team ever since. He was pictured training with the squad ahead of their League Cup semi-final this week but did not make the bench. The 19-year-old can play on the wing or up front and has been prolific for the under-21 side. He had a brief spell on loan at Wigan last season, and intriguingly his contract is up at the end of the season, with The Mirror claiming Manchester City are keen. He needs to play now though, and Leeds could benefit if they can convince him to join.
Teixeira is considered an outstanding talent and his lack of use at Liverpool is a source of constant frustration among supporters. He had an excellent loan spell at Brighton last season, which was only cut short by injury. His chances this season in the first team have been hard to come by, despite impressing when he has played. The attacking midfielder needs games and may fancy a return to the Championship.
Harry Wilson became Wales' youngest ever international when he was called up the the senior squad at just 16-years-old last season. The winger has been impressing for Liverpool's under-21 side ever since and remains highly rated. He is an outsider to make the Welsh squad for Euro 2016, but a loan move could change that, and moving to Leeds on loan for the rest of the season would be a gamble worth taking.
