Leeds United are looking determined to make a good start to the next season after they missed out narrowly on their much-coveted target of making it into the Championship playoffs, which could have been their way to head back into the top flight for the new season. However, they are not looking to ponder upon what has gone out of their hands and are looking ready to start all over again.
The Elland Road club have been eyeing a number of players for the new season under their new boss Thomas Christiansen, who has been appointed in place of their former manager Garry Monk. The ex-Spain international is looking determined to revamp his side for the next season and has sorted some players to be brought into the roster, who have made a big impact in the Championship over the last few seasons with their brilliant display of skills.
One such player, who has made a name for himself in the last few terms with his towering presence in the backline for Championship side Bristol City, Aden Flint, is right on the top of the target list for the Whites for the next season. Aden Flint has been one of the most highly regarded defenders in the Championship over the last few seasons and has been an integral part of the Bristol City side in safeguarding their backline.
Apart from Leeds United, a number of other clubs like Derby County, Reading, Middlesbrough and Sunderland have also been expressing interests to get their hands on the 28-year old English international. However, the Whites are currently looking favourites to make a move for the player and rope him in for the next season.
Flint has played in 200 matches for the Bristol City side and has stood like a rock in their defence over a long time throughout his career. However, speculations are rife that the towering centre back can make an exit out of the side in the summer to be a part of the Leeds United side for the next term.
Leeds United, who are looking for a solid centre back to share the responsibilities with Pontus Jansson in the new season, giving them solidarity in defence and making sure of their success in the next term, will be more than delighted to get the 28-year-old defender in their team.
The defender also might not be much averse to a move to the Elland Road club. Now it depends on Bristol City’s decision whether to let go of Flint or not.
