Leeds United are said to be interested in the Aston Villa man.
The Birmingham Mail have reported that Leeds United are interested in signing Aston Villa centre-back Tommy Elphick.
Leeds are said to be in the market for a central defender given that Pontus Jansson and Liam Cooper represent their only options for that role at the moment.
Giuseppe Bellusci is expected to leave the Whites, while it seems unlikely, at this stage, that a deal to permanently sign Kyle Bartley will be struck after his loan last season.
The Villans' only signed Elphick (for £3 million, according to The Birmingham Mail) last summer but John Terry's arrival has increased the competition for centre-back places.
The 29-year-old made 20 Championship appearances for the West-Midlands outfit last season, often playing second fiddle to James Chester and Nathan Baker, but Leeds fans on Twitter would love to see the former Bournemouth man at Elland Road next term.

Not too keen on Elphick tbh. Think he was poor at Villa and had good players around him.— Neil (@OooahhBerardi) July 14, 2017
