According to The Mirror, Leeds United are interested in bringing Bristol City left-back Joe Bryan to Elland Road in this summer’s transfer window.
Bristol City are going to find it very tough to keep hold of Bryan this summer due to the interest surrounding the 24-year-old.
Bryan scored seven times in 48 appearances for Bristol City in all competitions last term – including a goal against Manchester United in the EFL Cup, and he looked very much at home against the Red Devils.
Middlesbrough are amongst the clubs believed to be interested in the defender, but Premier League clubs are also said to be in the hunt.
The fact that Bryan will see his contract expire next summer has placed Bristol City in a difficult position, and they could well be forced into a sale ahead of the new season.
