Championship side Leeds United are being linked with a move for Real Betis midfielder Andres Guardado, according to the Spanish website El Gol Digital.

Leeds are apparently willing to spend £5.2 million on the midfielder. Guardado has impressed for Real Betis in La Liga and is being linked with a move away.

Guardado, 31, has made over 150 caps for Mexico. It may be a familiar name to those who have watched Mexico in the last couple of World Cups.

Leeds United manager Thomas Christiansen is set to be a busy man in the January transfer market as he looks to bring some new faces to Elland Road to bolster his squad for the rest of the season. Guardado is one player that he may well be targeting if these reports are true.

Guardado started his career with Mexican club Atlas before moving to Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna. He spent five seasons with Deportivo before being snapped up by Valencia in 2012. He spent three years with Valencia and also spent some time on loan at Bayer Leverkusen in 2014.

He left Spain in 2015 to join PSV. After two seasons in the Eredivisie, Guardado looked set to join Atlanta United in America in the summer before deciding to join Real Betis instead. Despite only joining Betis only a few months ago, he is already being linked with a move away.

Guardado is an experienced midfielder and would be some coup by Leeds. He has played in Mexico, Spain, Germany and Holland, is England his next destination?
