Leeds United are trying to sign a winger with moves for Swansea's Dan James and Bristol City's Callum O'Dowda discussed.

An outside the box name the Whites should be considering is Ukrainian winger Maryan Shved.

 

Shved made his international debut last year after his form for Karpaty Lviv caught Andriy Shevchenko's attention.

A clause in his contract means he is available for just £2 million and Celtic are weighing up an offer, the Scottish Sun report.

Former Sevilla youngster Shved has eight goals in 17 games this season and is just 21-years-old.

He is a bargain at just £2 million, especially considering Swansea want £5 million for Dan James, Teamtalk report.

Championship teams are asking for premium prices for their players especially where Leeds are concerned.

Some of the club's best bargains have been players from abroad, Mateusz Klich and Pontus Jansson.

Shved is talented and cheap enough at £2 million to be worth a gamble, to fill the void in the Whites' attack.
