According to The Yorkshire Post, Leeds United would like to take back former player Adam Clayton from Middlesbrough. Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, Aston Villa and Cardiff City have all shown interest in a 28-year-old midfielder.
The former Huddersfield player is out of favor this year by the manager Garry Monk and despite Tony Pulis was being appointed as a new chief of staff recently, he could be on his way out already in January.
Clayton has already performed very successfully for Leeds in the period between 2010 and 2012, after which he moved to the ranks of the local rival’ Huddersfield and now manager Thomas Christiansen hopes that he could get him back to Elland Road.
Although Leeds has a strong midfield, Clayton’ eventual arrival could further improve the team, as he is an experienced footballer who is well acquainted with English football.
The competition for bringing a powerful midfielder will be vast, so it is uncertain whether Leeds will be able to make this transfer.
