Reece Wabara was linked this week with signing for Leeds United.
Leeds United were linked this week with a surprise swoop for free agent Reece Wabara.
The Sun's edition on 20/7, page 49, reported the Whites were keen on a deal for the defender, who once represented England at youth level.

There has not been any progress on a deal just yet for Wabara, and it remains to be seen how much of a priority he really is.
The 24-year-old right-back would not necessarily be coming in to earn a first team spot - unless Charlie Taylor is sold and Gaetano Berardi switches to left-back.
Wabara spent last season at Barnsley, where he was signed on a short term deal by now Leeds chief executive Ben Mansford, before leaving to sign with Wigan Athletic when his contract at Oakwell expired.

Leeds fans have been split over a potential move for Wabara, with some arguing he is not good enough or not needed, while others believe he will be good as cover.
Here is a look at the reaction on Twitter to the speculation...
I don't see everyone's issue with the potential signing of wabara... He's free! Cover... And was in league 1 team of the year... (1) #lufc— SS5 Jay (@JayBlufc) July 21, 2016
Why do our fans think every player we sign is for the starting 11? We need back up players and Wabara fits that #lufc— Ant (@antonyLUFCmay) July 20, 2016
Reece Wabara is a clear lack of ambition and just the case of filling in a position! #lufc— Passion For Leeds (@PassionForLeeds) July 20, 2016
I'll take Wabara as a squad player. Doesn't cover up the deficiencies we have though #lufc— Neil (@OooahhBerardi) July 20, 2016
Leeds linked to reece wabara? No thanks, we have berardi and coyle #lufc— Adam Osborne (@AdamOzzy) July 20, 2016
We shouldn't be looking at players of the quality of Wabara bearing in mind what squad we have at the moment, we need quality proven #lufc— Tom Raynor (@TOMLUFC1995) July 20, 2016
Leeds fans need to wake up, they're so desperate for a signing some are happy with players like wabara. We need better to compete. #lufc— Luke Hollick (@___Lhollick) July 20, 2016
