Leeds are keen to sign Fulham midfielder Harrison Reed this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The combative midfielder impressed at the heart of Scott Parker’s midfield even though the Cottagers were relegation from the top flight. Reed, who joined Fulham for £6m from Southampton last summer after a successful loan spell at Craven Cottage, made 33 appearances last season having shaken off early injuries to become a key member of the side.

The 26 year-old has spoken of his desire to stay with the club and help Fulham bounce back to the Premier League at the first attempt, but the lure of immediate top flight football – as well as working with Marcelo Bielsa – may prove too strong. Reed has three years to run on his current contract – with the club holding an option to extend that deal by a further year.
