Leeds United appear to be considering a surprise move for Boban Lazic.

Leeds United are weighing up a move for free agent winger Boban Lazic.

Lazic posted an image on his Instagram feed in a Leeds training kit yesterday, amid suggestions he is on trial at the club.

Lazic, 23, has represented Bosnia at under-23 level and played last season for Dutch second tier side FC Oss.

After netting four goals and providing nine assists he could make a fresh start at Leeds, and has twice come close to a move to England before.

The former Ajax youngster told Goal how he had a trial at Hull City in 2014 which ended badly.

After four days he picked up an injury, explaining: "I wanted to get up, but I could not move anymore." 

He had suffered a broken bone which required an operation.

Weeks later he went back to Hull City as a free agent, only to suffer an inflamed groin, which ended his hopes of clinching a move to the Tigers.

After missing the time at Olympiakos due to injury, and seeing his progress at Ajax hampered by a serious shoulder injury, Lazic's luck was not looking up, before he moved back to Holland.

He signed a deal with PEC Zwolle and later with FC Oss, and has managed to get some first team football under his belt.

Lazic is due some good luck, and will hope his trial at Leeds goes a lot better than his ill fated spells at Hull.

If he can begin fulfilling the potential which saw him play for Ajax's youth teams along big money Everton signing Davy Klaassen, then Leeds will have snapped up a bargain.
