Sky Sports are reporting that Leeds United are interested in signing David Stockdale on a season-long loan deal.

The Championship outfit are in the market for a new goalkeeper after they decided to allow Kasper Schmeichel to join Leicester City. Simon Grayson has been linked with moves for the likes of Jerzy Dudek and Andy Lonergan but the Leeds boss is keen to try and tempt Stockdale with the possibility of a move back to his hometown.

The 25 year-old has caught the eye of England boss Fabio Capello after some fine performances when deputising for Mark Schwarzer in the Fulham goal. Martin Jol has already admitted he is likely to loan out his number two goalkeeper, having confirmed that Schwarzer will be his first choice in goal, and Swansea have already been strongly rumoured to have tabled their interest in Stockdale.

The former York and Darlington custodian has made thirteen appearances for Fulham since signing from Darlington for £600,000 in June 2008.
