Leeds in pursuit of £2m+ centre-mid who is mainstay for Midlands club - Sky Sports

Leeds United are in the hunt to sign Coventry City midfielder Zain Westbrooke, according to Sky Sports.

The broadcaster reported via their official Sky Sports Football Twitter account on Monday that Cardiff and Bristol City are also interested in the 23-year-old, who has been a regular for Coventry in League One this season.


TeamTalk has recently reported that Coventry want over £2million for the former Brentford midfielder, who is also attracting attention from West Brom, Derby and Nottingham Forest.

It seems that if Leeds are serious about their interest in the midfielder then they are going to have to splash some cash in order to win the race for his signature.

Marcelo Bielsa definitely needs to add some strength in depth to his central midfield options and Westbrooke is someone who has been performing well for Coventry this season.

He has made 24 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring four goals and supplying four assists in the process for the Midlands club.

Is he good enough to make a step up from League One to the Championship? Based on the quality of the clubs who are interested in him then he might be.

However Leeds are unlikely to do much this month other than bring players in on loan and that £2million-plus price-tag could be a dealbreaker for Andrea Radrizzani.

In other Leeds United news, this defender has admitted he was worried before he joined the Whites in 2018.
