Report: Leeds United join chase for Celtic misfit Scott Allan who Steve Evans tried to sign for Rotherham in the summer

The talented midfielder has failed to make an impact at Parkhead.

Reports in Scotland are suggesting that Leeds United are ready to join the race for Celtic midfielder Scott Allan.

The Daily Record is reporting in their print edition, as reported by the BBC's Scottish football gossip column, that the midfielder is on the radar of Leeds United boss Steve Evans.

Evans, a Celtic fan, tried to sign him in the summer for Rotherham United but the talented Scot decided to head to Parkhead from Hibernian instead.

His move to Glasgow has not been a success. He has featured just 16 times for the club since making the move and is yet to find the back of the net for Celtic.

The incoming arrival of Norwegian wonderkid Kristoffer Ajer is not likely to aid his situation and plenty of teams are keeping tabs of his situation.

It was reported by the Scottish Sun this week that fellow Championship sides Nottingham Forest, QPR and Derby County are also interested in snapping him up from the Scottish league leaders.

However Evans will surely hope that his summer interest whilst Rotherham boss, coupled with his Celtic links, might be the formula that brings Allan to Leeds ahead of other interested parties.
