Reports this morning suggest that Leeds United are keen to bring both Jefferson Montero and Dan James to Elland Road this month. The Swansea City pair both fit the bill in terms of what Leeds United are after it certainly isn’t straight forward in terms of doing deals with other Championship clubs.

Dan James is the more valuable of the two players currently due to his age and the fact he’s a young British prospect. Alan Nixon has suggested that Swansea City value him at around £2.5 million which shouldn’t be an issue if Leeds really want him. At 21 he is still developing and Leeds are short of wingers. He normally plays down the left but either side shouldn’t be a problem. Whether the interest in genuine or Leeds act on it is another matter entirely.

Jefferson Montero is another situation entirely. This would most likely be a loan but he’s a player who Leeds fans would love. One of the fastest players around and on his day can be a match winner Montero fits the bill for a player that could add something different at Leeds United. Montero and Jack Clarke bombing down the flanks is something to get the mind ticking over but again, how much interest in the player there actually is remains to be seen.

Leeds are on the brink of making one of the biggest signings in the club’s recent history, Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla set for a medical at Leeds in the next few days. Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay broke the news just after Leeds sunk Derby County on Friday night and it’s a deal that has caught the imagination of Leeds United fans. Leeds will buy him out of the remainder of his contract at Real Madrid and will sign him on a permanent deal.
