Leeds United are leading the chase for highly rated Belgian full back Bryan Verboom, HITC Sport understands.

The 24-year-old is currently with Zulte Waregem, having started his career with his hometown club Anderlecht.

He has become one of the most consistent left-backs in Belgium's top-flight over the past few seasons and now he is being lined up for a move to England.

Championship Leeds have him on their radar as a likely replacement for wantaway Charlie Taylor - a target for West Ham amongst other clubs - and a move for Verboom could make his departure somewhat easier, with boss Garry Monk keen for an immediate replacement.

However, Leeds are not the only club looking at Verboom as Premier League clubs including West Bromwich Albion and Hull City are also showing an interest as well as Welsh outfit Cardiff City.

Verboom, who has three-years left on his current deal, is set to cost around £2million for any interested party.
