It has been reported that representatives of Bielik have spoken with Leeds as well as with other Championship clubs, including Nottingham Forest.

Not only would the 19-year-old add depth to the centre-back position, but he would also be help out in defensive midfield.

Liam Bridcutt’s departure to Nottingham Forest has opened up a spot in the defensive midfield department.

The Whites are also look strong in central defence, with Pontus Jansson, Liam Cooper, Conor Shaughnessy and Matthew Pennington the four players for that position.
