Three Leeds United players who Neil Redfearn could sign for Blackburn Rovers

Former Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn is tipped to be one of the favourites to land the Blackburn Rovers job.

With former Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn reportedly in the running to land the job at Blackburn Rovers (HITC), we take a look at three players he could look to sign from the Elland Road club.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Redfearn is known to have a great relationship with Leeds’ youngsters, and during his time with Rotherham United he snapped up Chris Dawson from Leeds, after the Welsh youth international was released. 

Peacock-Farrell could be another Whites youngster who is looking for a move in the near future, with his contract situation still not sorted.

The young goalkeeper is tipped to have a bright future at Leeds, but he reportedly wants assurances of first-team football, which the Whites have not been able to offer him.

Peacock-Farrell has been linked with Premier League sides, but a reunion with Redfearn could be a temptation.

Scott Wootton

Wootton looks set to leave Leeds soon, with his contract at the Yorkshire club do to expire.

Wootton thought he had signed a deal at Leeds which would last until 2017, but the Whites did not finalise the agreement (Yorkshire Evening Post) and the defender is now expected to leave Elland Road in the near future.

Redfearn was a known admirer of Wootton during his time in charge at Leeds, and he could look to bring him to Blackburn to strengthen his defensive options.

Kalvin Phillips

A move for Phillips arguably looks the most unlikely of the three potential deals, but the youngster’s progress at Leeds does seem to have stalled this season.

The 20-year-old was given a number of first-team opportunities by Redfearn, but Steve Evans has been more reluctant to play the midfielder.

Phillips has not made a start for Leeds in the entirety of 2016, and the 20-year-old is now reaching an age where he needs to start playing regularly to aid his development.
