Who replaces Charlie Taylor? Three Championship options which Leeds United may consider

Leeds United's Charlie Taylor

The left-back continues to be linked with moves away from Leeds United.

Leeds United's Charlie Taylor

With no new contract looking like being agreed, it would appear that Charlie Taylor will be leaving Leeds United - either in January or, perhaps more likely, in the summer when his current deal expires.

That said, both West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City have been linked with winter moves this week and it would be wise, therefore, for Leeds to begin drawing up a list of alternatives.

Could the following three players feature?

3) Luke Garbutt

The supporters' choice it seems, or at least he was in the summer after Everton failed to assign the former Thorp Arch youngster a squad number. The 23-year-old eventually joined Wigan on loan, but only until 2 January, which could be ideal if Taylor is prised away.

2) Jonas Knudsen

A Scandinavian dubbed 'Mad Dog' by Ipswich fans, few candidates are perhaps more suited to slot in alongside Pontus Jansson on the left-hand side of Leeds' defence than Knudsen. With Town skint - and the 24-year-old's contract due to expire at 2018 - Leeds might be able to tempt them into a sale.

1) Greg Cunningham

A teammate of Leeds' Luke Ayling at Bristol City, Cunningham has excelled since swapping the Robins for Preston North End last summer. The 25-year-old, who began life at Manchester City, signed a new long-term deal in the autumn, but if the Whites continue the way they're going, they'll be difficult to turn down.

Who would you like to see replace Taylor at Elland Road?
