Could Leeds United's goalkeeper chase end with Southampton's Fraser Forster?

The experienced stopper has fallen down the pecking order at St Mary's to third choice, behind Alex McCarthy and Angus Gunn.

Forster began the 2017/18 season as number one, and looks likely to have to leave to play regular football.

Teamtalk yesterday suggested Forster as a potential option for the Whites, sparking some reaction on Twitter, to a positive reception

Leeds have no competition for inexperienced youngster Bailey Peacock-Farrell, other than under-23 'keeper Will Huffer, who has only played one first team game.

The Whites cannot leave themselves short in the promotion race, and a move this month is essential.

Southampton paid £10 million to sign Forster from Celtic in 2014 and he was a regular for more than three seasons.

New manager Ralph Hassenhuttl has confirmed he is free to leave on loan, commenting: "It can be that Fraser can take a game in the under-23s, because he needs to get back in a position where he is an option for other clubs maybe, and that is what we try to force in the future."
