Could Jota replace Stuart Dallas at Leeds United?

Jota of Brentford scores the second Brentford goal during the Sky Bet Championship match between Brentford and QPR at Griffin Park on April 22, 2017 in Brentford, England.

Leeds United should look at Jota if Stuart Dallas leaves Elland Road.

Worryingly for Leeds United, Chris Wood might not be the last high-profile player to leave Elland Road this summer as The Yorkshire Post report that Norwich City are interested in signing winger Stuart Dallas before the window shuts.

The 26-year-old winger looks a man reborn under Thomas Christiansen, having endured a frustrating, below-par season under Garry Monk last time around.

Losing him would be a blow for Leeds - a big one - but Director of Football Victor Orta would make it better by signing Brentford winger Jota.

Sky Sports have reported that the Spanish winger is available for around £8 million, and the Whites, who have twice that amount after selling Wood to Burnley, should definitely enter the race if Dallas does join Norwich.

The 26-year-old scored 12 times in 19 Championship starts for the Bees last season and already has three assists in as many games this season. As a result, speculation about his future is understandable, but Leeds have the money - and perhaps the pull - to sign him.

Early days, but it looks like United - fifth in the Championship, four points off the leaders Cardiff and Ipswich - will have a much better chance of promotion than Brentford, who sit bottom of the table with one point.

The Elland Road club would have to beat off competition from a number of other Championship sides - and Premier League outfit West Ham - but if the Irons fail to make a move then Leeds is as good a destination as any.
