The Birmingham City goalkeeper is said to be a target for hometown club Leeds United.

Leeds United have tabled a bid for Birmingham City goalkeeper David Stockdale, according to the Birmingham Mail.

However, the Whites’ offer is said to be short of the Blues’ asking price.

Stockdale moved to Birmingham on a free transfer from Brighton and Hove Albion last summer, but it is claimed the Leeds-born player has been told he can leave St Andrew’s despite having two years left on his contract.

However, Leeds’ attempts to offer the 32-year-old a lifeline do not appear to be going well, with the Yorkshire Evening Post reporting the two parties are apart on wages too.

Aiming at wrong target?

If true, Leeds may be forced to consider alternatives in goal, especially with other areas of their squad in need of strengthening during the summer transfer window.

The Whites have also been credited with interest in Manchester City youngster Angus Gunn, who impressed while on loan to Norwich City last season.

And the Yorkshire side could have better luck in that particular pursuit, given the healthy relationship that exists between respective Manchester City and Leeds managers Pep Guardiola and Marcelo Bielsa.
