Leeds United and Swansea City are tracking highly-rated Harrogate Town goalkeeper Peter Crook, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Crook caught the eye of National League North side Harrogate Town last season with a number of impressive performances for the North Yorkshire club resulting in him being named in the National League North Team of the Season.

The former Scunthorpe United youth product kept eight clean sheets in 24 games last season for Harrogate and was called up to the England C squad.

Crook has established himself as Harrogate's No.1 keeper in the last 18 months and his performances have brought him to the attention of a number of clubs higher up the football pyramid.

The 24-year-old is entering the final year of his contract at Harrogate and the club are bracing themselves for offers for Crook this summer.

Leeds have held a long-term interest in Crook after watching in action on several occasions and they saw an offer to take the player on trial with a view to a deal rejected by Harrogate.
