Leeds United are interested in signing Andy Lonergan from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer transfer window, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

It has been reported that Leeds have lined up Lonergan as a replacement for Robert Green, who is claimed to be on the radar of Premier League club Huddersfield Town.

According to the report, the 33-year-old is set for a return to Elland Road, having left the Whites back in 2012.
