Brescia are interested in signing Tyler Denton from Leeds United in the summer transfer window, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

It has been reported that the Italian club want to secure the services of 22-year-old Denton, who can operate as a left-back or as a midfielder, on a season-long loan deal from Leeds.

The report has also claimed that the Serie B outfit are close to reaching an agreement with the Whites over the transfer of 27-year-old Swedish striker Marcus Antonsson, who will reportedly not feature in new head coach Marcelo Bielsa’s plan for the 2017-18 campaign.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has reported that Brescia owner Massimo Cellino, who also used to own Leeds, is in the process of finalising a permanent contract for Antonsson, subject to a medical, and the Italian businessman is also claimed to want Denton on a season-long loan deal with an option of a permanent contract.

What should Leeds United do?

Antonsson has struggled to make an impact at Leeds since his move from Kalmar FF in the summer of 2016, and it would make sense for the Whites to part company with him.

However, Denton is a very talented and promising young player, and given that he is only 22 years of age, perhaps the left-back should be given at least six more months to prove that he can still succeed for the Whites.
