Should Leeds United go back in for Rangers' Josh Windass?

Should Championship side Leeds United take another look at in-form Glasgow Rangers playmaker Josh Windass after his goal at Ibrox?

Josh Windass of Rangers has a shot on goal during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers FC and Celtic FC at Ibrox Stadium on April 29, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Josh Windass signed a contract extension with Rangers last month, following speculation linking him with Leeds United and other Championship clubs in January.

But should the Elland Road club take another look at the in-form Gers playmaker despite that development?

According to The Record, Leeds were weighing up a January move for the Rangers star and, if they were keen then, they must be far more interested now.

The 24-year-old attacker has netted 12 goals in his last nine games for the Ibrox club in all competitions and though Leeds fans might refuse to read a lot into his hat-trick against Ayr United for example, they can't ignore his goal against Celtic on Sunday.

Scoring against the Scottish Premiership giants was a clear sign that Windass can do the business against much better sides, and impressing against Celtic certainly bodes well for his capacity to do the same in the Championship.

On January 29, The Record reported that Rangers valued Windass at around £2 million, but his red-hot form since then and contract extension mean that Leeds would have to pay a sizeable sum to get him - but they might need a player of that ilk this summer.

Samu Saiz is one of the few positives to come out of United's Championship campaign, but the Spanish playmaker, a £3.1 million signing last summer, is going to be a tough player to keep in West Yorkshire beyond this season, with Leeds presently sitting 13th in the table.

If he isn't already, Director of Football Victor Orta should have a list of possible replacements drawn up and the Rangers man should be close to the top of that shortlist.
