Leeds United fans want Aden Flint signed up, after watching him in action for Bristol City last night.

Bristol City pulled off a cup upset yesterday, as they beat Manchester United 2-1 at Ashton Gate.

Flint was imperious at the back against the might of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku, and his performance has earned widespread praise.

Leeds fans are now keen to see Flint brought to Elland Road in January, if a deal is possible.

Leeds were heavily linked with Flint during the summer transfer window in the Bristol Post, but were unable to get a deal over the line.

Lee Johnson stated that the rumours of Leeds interest in Flint ‘weren’t true’ at the time, but Whites fans are now hoping that there is some substance behind them.

Whether the time has now passed for Leeds to sign Flint remains to be seen.

Bristol City have been in excellent form so far this season, and currently sit four places above Leeds in the Championship table.
