Leeds United have enquired about Premier League players Peter Crouch and Jack Grealish, according to BBC Sport.

Leeds have been linked with both players this month and now there has been official confirmation from boss Steve Evans that the club enquired about taking both players on loan.

However Evans was told by Stoke City and Aston Villa that neither player was available and they wouldn’t be leaving their respective clubs on loan this month.

Crouch has hardly played for Stoke this season due to the good form of Arnautovic, Bojan and Shaqiri.  This has led to speculation about the former England striker’s future with the Potters, but it now seems that Mark Hughes wants to keep Crouch at Stoke.

Grealish was a key part of the Villa team under former boss Tim Sherwood but has been frozen out since Remi Garde took charge of the relegation-threatened club.  Last year the midfielder was pictured partying after a heavy defeat and was dropped to the development squad.

Both players have been linked with several Championship clubs already this month but it seems that for the moment they won’t be loaned out.
