According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United are stepping up their interest in Birmingham City’s goalkeeper David Stockdale.
The former Premier League ‘keeper has been told he is surplus to requirements at Birmingham this summer and will be allowed to leave just a year after signing for the club.
Leeds are keen on the 32-year-old but are also monitoring the situation of Manchester City’s goalkeeper Angus Gunn, who they hope will be available on loan, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Leeds definitely need more options in goal, and despite the talent of Bailey Peacock-Farrell, the 21-year-old could do with some competition.
Stockdale has a lot of experience at Championship level, having helped Brighton achieve promotion in 2017, and the ‘keeper represents a safe pair of hands for Leeds.
The 6″3 colossus may not be the most exciting prospect, and if the possibility remains to take Gunn on loan, Leeds would be wise to snap him up.
However, Yorkshire-born Stockdale, who supported Leeds as a young boy, remains a solid choice and would be a sensible, if unremarkable choice for the Whites.
