Gillingham’s Bradley Dack is trying to force a move to Leeds United according to a report from the Daily Mail.
For many years, the 23-year-old midfielder has been a star player for the Gills, notably last season when he was one of their best players as they came close to getting a Sky Bet League One play-off spot. While his form hasn’t been as hot as it has been previously, he has only scored four times in 27 appearances this season, he still has a lot of ability and many teams would love to pick him up.
And with the longstanding Bristol City interest not seeming to materialise during this transfer window, Dack is now trying to force a move away from Priestfield and his agent is trying to pull the strings and get him a move to Leeds.
The West Yorkshire club have a lot of top quality central midfielders at the moment which may suggest that they aren’t willing to do a deal here, but their head coach Garry Monk may look to sign him anyway. Their loan signing Matt Grimes hasn’t worked out as expected while they sold Alex Mowatt to their Yorkshire rivals Barnsley earlier in the transfer window, meaning Leeds may want to sign a new midfielder.
But at the moment, this seems to be a deal that an agent is trying to do rather than a move that both teams are working hard on. This means it is a transfer that is more of an outside chance at the moment.
