Championship trio Brentford, Leeds United and QPR are all interested in signing Montpellier defender William Remy in January, according to Sport Witness.

Leeds were linked with a move for the Frenchman in the summer but failed to lure him to Elland Road. They are now apparently still tracking the defender and may move for him again in January, but will now face competition from their Championship rivals QPR and Brentford.

Leeds will be looking for some acquisitions in January to bolster their ranks as they look to push into the Play-Offs and into contention for promotion. However, it is believed that Thomas Christiansen sees signing some attacking players as a priority over defensive options.

QPR and Brentford, on the other hand, will see William Remy as someone who could solve their defensive frailties. Both of them have conceded too many goals so far this season.

Remy has spent all of his career playing in France. The 26 year-old started his career with Lens and made his professional debut in October 2008. He had a trial with Newcastle United during his time with Lens but did not earn a move to England.

He joined Dijon in 2012 and spent 3 seasons with them before signing for Montpellier in 2015. He has also represented France at U17, U18 and U19 level. He has not been getting much game time at Montpellier in Ligue 1 and will be seeking a move away. With Championship sides QPR, Brentford and Leeds United all showing an interest, it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
