Leeds United are reportedly keen to sign Rangers attacker Josh Windass, with the Daily Record reporting their interest.

Windass is back in form for Rangers under Graeme Murty, but before that he was a much derided player at Ibrox who fans were keen to see the back of.

Windass has scored six goals in 20 appearances for Rangers this season in the Scottish Premiership, but he might not be what Leeds need right now.

The Whites are crying out for proven talent as they look to win promotion to the Premier League.

Windass is not that, with his only previous experience in England coming for League Two side Accrington Stanley in 2015/16.

The attacking midfielder is inconsistent, and may not even be better than a player controversially discarded by Garry Monk 12 months ago.

Attacking midfielder, game changing talent, goes missing at times, Windass sounds a lot like Alex Mowatt, who is now plying his trade at League One side Oxford, on loan from Barnsley.

Windass is 24-years-old and has recently attracted interest from Preston.

He could be a signing which would pay off for Leeds, but the Whites need to find players with more proven track records at this point if they are to inspire fan confidence.
