According to The Dundee Evening Telegraph, Leeds United are unwilling to pay a huge £1m to sign Dundee striker Greg Stewart this summer.

The Whites are in the market for at least one new striker this summer, and the Yorkshire Evening Post reported earlier this week that Kalmar striker Marcus Antonsson is on the verge of a move to Elland Road.

However, Garry Monk's desire to add attacking firepower may not end there, with links now being made to a move for a Scottish forward, though concerns remain over his asking price.

The Dundee Evening Telegraph report that Leeds are one club interested in signing Dundee forward Greg Stewart - but not for Dundee's £1m asking price.

Stewart, 26, hit 11 goals for Dundee last season, meaning it's now 26 goals in the last two seasons for the former Rangers youngster, who can play out wide or up front.

With just one year left on his contract, it will be increasingly difficult for Dundee to keep Stewart as time passes - but they aren't budging from their asking price.

It's claimed that Dundee have slapped a £1m valuation on Stewart, which is a fee Leeds aren't willing to pay despite their desire to sign another forward, but clubs remain keen on the player.

The report adds that clubs will retain an interest in Stewart in the hope of bringing that asking price down as Stewart's contract winds down, which may mean waiting until January to get him, with Dundee refusing to budge right now.

Do you think Leeds should pay £1m for Stewart?
