Leeds United and Huddersfield Town’s Icelandic target Sverrir Ingason is open to a move to England, according to reports coming out of Spain.

Reports in the Sun in recent days have linked the Iceland international to both Premier League side Huddersfield Town, and Sky Bet Championship side Leeds United.

The rumours first appeared earlier this week, and now the defender has come out and said that he is keeping his options open, despite only moving to Spanish side Granada in January.

He joined the Spanish top flight side from Belgian club Lokeren, but could already be on his way out of Spain after just six months there.

He was unable to save Granada from relegation, and they will now be playing in the Spanish Segunda next season.

Because of this, it is believed that Ingason will be allowed to move on, thanks to a release clause in his current contract.

The fee that it is reported clubs will have to pay in order to sign him is £2.3million.

Ingason is only 23-years-old, meaning there is plenty of time for him to develop.

Leeds United are searching for a permanent partner for Pontus Jansson. The Swedish defender formed a formidable partnership with Kyle Bartley last season, but Bartley has now returned to his parent club Swansea City.

Meanwhile, news that Huddersfield town defender Michael Hefele is being linked with a move away from the club could increase the Terriers’ interest in Ingason, as manager David Wagner aims to build a squad capable of staying in the Premier League.
