Leeds United are planning a £7 million double raid on Aston Villa's Ross McCormack and Tommy Elphick, according to the Sun's printed edition on Tuesday [page 55].
The report claims Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen wants the out-of-favour pair to get his side's play-off bid 'back on track'.
McCormack is set to return to Aston Villa this week from a spell on loan to Melbourne City, where he has scored 14 goals in 16 games.
However, it is unclear whether or not the Scotland striker, who scored 53 goals in 144 games for Leeds, would be allowed to play for a third club this season, having already appeared for Villa and City.
The Daily Mail reported on Monday that McCormack is attracting interest from a trio of clubs in the United States, for whom he would be permitted to play - which would not be the case for those in England.
McCormack is said to be valued at £4.5 million, with defender Elphick reportedly rated at £2.5 million.
Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Manchester United youngster Axel Tuanzebe, who could take Elphick's place in Steve Bruce's squad.
Would McCormack and Elphick be good Leeds United signings?
