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.
