Sunderland have made enquiries about Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor, according to The Chronicle.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that Premier League side Sunderland are keen on taking advantage of the current managerial situation at Leeds and have enquired about Taylor’s availability.

Steve Evans is in charge of the West Yorkshire outfit at the moment, but his current contract runs out at the end of next month and no new deal is in place.

Taylor, who can also play as a left-winger, is one of the best young players in the Championship and was in good form for Leeds this past season.
