Reported Leeds United target in January, Callum O’Dowda, wants to leave Bristol City in the summer transfer window, according to The Times.

According to The Times, O’Dowda - who has not played for the club since early March - wants to part company with Championship club City this summer.

It has been reported that the 24-year-old winger has a year left on his contract at the Robins and could be worth £6 million in transfer fees.

In January 2019, Sky Sports reported of Leeds’s interest in signing the former Oxford United winger in the January transfer window.

Summer move?

O’Dowda played with Kemar Roofe at Oxford, and the pair have a good on-pitch understanding, and Leeds could try to replicate that at Elland Road.

The 24-year-old winger has done well in the Championship, and it does make sense for Leeds to make a move for him, as they attempt to win promotion to the Premier League.

According to WhoScored, O’Dowda made 20 starts and 11 substitute appearances in the Championship for City this season, scoring four goals and providing four assists in the process.
