Reports in Denmark are suggesting that Danish Superliga outfit AaB are hopeful of signing Leeds United midfielder Casper Sloth this summer.

It is reported by Nordjyske in Denmark that the Leeds midfielder has become one of the club’s main targets for this summer.

The report claims they are trying to convince Leeds United to release the player, as they would struggle to pay a fee for the player.

Signed from AGF Aarhus in August 2014 Sloth has failed to make an impact at Elland Road despite his international recognition for his country – he has eight caps for the Danish national team.

He did not feature at all for Leeds last season, with his last appearance coming in February 2015 against Brighton – so on the one hand it is hard to see why Leeds would want to keep hold of the player.

However, Leeds do have a new boss in Garry Monk who may want to take a look at Sloth in action before deciding whether or not to let him go this summer.

But with plenty of the fringe players being cut from the Leeds team this summer, Sloth might be next.
