Leeds reportedly eyeing ambitious swoop for 25-year-old left-back

According to reports, Leeds United are in talks to sign left-back Laurens De Bock from Club Brugge.

De Bock has been training with Club Brugge during their winter training camp and is also a target of clubs in Italy.

The 25-year old is a very experienced campaigner in the Belgian top flight, having made 210 appearances during his spell with Lokeren as well as now with Brugge.

However he has fallen down the pecking order at Brugge this season and has only managed six appearances.

According to reports, Leeds have already inquired about the player and have agreed personal terms with his representatives.

As a result of his limited game time this season, the player is expected to be sold for less than the £2.7 million which Brugge paid to recruit him five years ago.

Should Leeds manage to sign De Bock, they could solve a problem as they have had to use the right-sided Gaetano Berardi out of position following the departure of Charlie Taylor last summer.
