The Premier League title-winner faces an uncertain future.

Back in January then Leeds United boss Steve Evans was linked with several high-profile potential loan signings.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported that the Scot wanted the likes of Jack Grealish or Peter Crouch at the club – with Nathan Dyer also on the list.

The Swansea star was on loan at Leicester City, but not playing regularly. The hope was that deal could be terminated and he could head to Elland Road.

Nothing ever came of it and in truth it was always just a far-fetched idea, but perhaps now Leeds should be going back in for the Swansea star.

They have a trump card, of sorts. New Leeds boss Garry Monk worked with Dyer at Swansea and the pair were also briefly together at Swansea and Southampton as players.

Of course Monk is the man who loaned out Dyer to Leicester last season, a move which came back to sting him.

But their relationship is still believed to be strong. Indeed, when Dyer was sent out on loan, Monk made it clear that he still saw a future for the player at Swansea – as reported by the South Wales Evening Post.

There are clear obstacles – but they can be overcome.

Firstly, Dyer told the South Wales Evening Post this week that his desire was to remain a Swansea player, but that could change should first-team football not be offered.

Then there are wages, but Leeds could possibly afford a loan deal and with his contract expiring in 12 months the Yorkshire club could then assess the potential of a permanent deal for Dyer.

It is a deal that Evans wanted to do, and one that Monk should if Leeds are to really go for promotion this season.
