Leeds United are looking to pursue a deal for Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers according to The Irish Sun.

Premier League new boys Norwich are also said to be interested in the Republic of Ireland international as they look to improve their current squad ahead of the new campaign.

In the final two matches of last season the 20-year-old make his first senior appearances for the Cherries and he is now in demand this transfer window.

It is expected that Eddie Howe’s side will look to offer the youngster a new deal due to his promotion to the first team but details are yet to be finalised and this could allow a number of clubs to monitor the situation.

At just 20 years of age there is plenty of improvement and development for the goalkeeper to make but Leeds should ideally be looking for someone to compete with Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Kiko Casilla and there are doubts as to whether Travers is yet ready for the challenge.

There is speculation that Casilla could be on his way out of Elland Road and this could pave the way for Travers to be a back up goalkeeper to Peacock-Farrell but surely he is in a similar situation at Bournemouth so perhaps he would be better served continuing at the Premier League club.

The Irish international still has two years left on his current contract with Bournemouth so there is no hurry in which to commit his future.

It is thought that Travers wishes to have assurances regarding his position next season as a potential loan option could also be under consideration.

Leeds are certainly in need of reinforcements in the goalkeeping department and Travers could provide great competition in that area.
