The Sun reported on Wednesday that Leeds United are in talks with Crystal Palace over a deal for Jordon Mutch.

It is claimed that Leeds are hoping to persuade Palace to accept a cut-price deal, worth around £2 million, for Mutch, who is out of favour at Selhurst Park.

And the report adds the Whites - who sold midfielder Liam Bridcutt to Nottingham Forest this week - would be willing to take the 25-year-old on a season-long loan if an agreement cannot be reached.

Palace are said to have paid around £4.7 million to sign Mutch from Queens Park Rangers in January 2015, but the former England Under-21 has struggled to make a positive impression in that time and was loaned to Reading last season.

The prospect of selling him to Leeds, therefore, has prompted an excited reaction in south London.

Here's what the Palace fans have been saying on Twitter - so should Leeds steer clear of Mutch?

Would the Crystal Palace midfielder be a good signing for Thomas Christiansen's Leeds United?
