The Championship side are reportedly looking for a new goalkeeper.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds boss Garry Monk is looking for a new first-choice goalkeeper ahead of his first season at Elland Road. And judging by Derek McInnes' latest comments, Monk may want to consider going after a stopper who has previously been on United's radar.

The Aberdeen boss has told The Scottish Sun that Danny Rogers will leave the Dons on loan next term following the arrivals of Neil Alexander and Joe Lewis.

"Danny Rogers will go out on loan again," he confirmed to The Scottish Sun

"I think that's the best thing for him.

"During the conversations I had with Danny it was clear he would prefer to go out on loan again if he wasn't going to be number one."

The Scottish Sun reported in January that the 22-year-old was attracting the Whites' attention after shining during the first half of this past campaign. 

And having continued his fine form throughout his loan spell with Falkirk - he was named in the PFA Scottish Championship Team of the Season - Monk may wish to consider bolstering his ranks by bringing the Republic of Ireland under-21 international in for the season.

With Bailey Peacock-Farrell already showing signs that he has the ability to be United's number one for many years to come, a one-year loan deal is arguably the perfect option.

A move will allow Peacock-Farrell to continue his development, ready to possibly take the number one spot when Rogers returns to Pittodrie next summer. 

And a loan move would mean that Monk would have more funds to invest in other areas of the squad than he would if he signed another, more experienced goalkeeper on a permanent basis.
