Leeds need a new goalkeeper to provide competition.
There have not been many easy options for Leeds United so far in their search for a back-up goalkeeper.
The Whites are looking to provide competition for young talent Bailey Peacock-Farrell, after Jamal Blackman suffered a season ending injury.
Mannone has made six Championship appearances this season and is just the type of goalkeeper Leeds need to help Peacock-Farrell, who the club still intend to be number one, unless his form dips badly.
The former Arsenal goalkeeper has experience, at Premier League and Championship level.
Mannone made 23 first team appearances for Arsenal, and 80 for Sunderland, before joining Reading in 2017.
He has played for Reading 47 times, but has been displaced this season and Reading are looking to move him on.
The 30-year-old is not perfect, he has the odd mistake in him, but so did Rob Green, who quickly became a fan favourite at Elland Road before unwisely being cast aside.
The best availability is sometimes simply availability, and Mannone is an option Leeds may not have too much trouble getting as they look to preserve their status in the automatic promotion spots.
