As reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United are interested in signing Swansea City defender Kyle Bartley this summer.
Bartley had a successful spell on loan at Leeds last season, striking up a formidable partnership with Pontus Jansson in the heart of the Elland Road side’s defensive line.
Struggling this season to get regular first-team football at the Swans, a return to Leeds could be tempting for the 26-year-old.
Leeds could certainly do with the defensive improvement having conceded more than all 13 of the teams currently above them in the English Championship table.
Fans are eager for the deal to happen, believing signing the defender could be the start of an exciting summer as the club look to build a squad capable of competing for play-off positions next term.
Will his return see an improvement in Leeds’ fortunes?
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

It’s going to take more than Kyle Bartley signing! It’s a great start but more quality needed in other areas too #lufc

Actually might cry tears of joy if Kyle Bartley comes back. He might bring the old Pontus back with him as well. #LUFC
