According to reports from the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United are still in the hunt to sign Swansea City defender Kyle Bartley.
Despite the disappointing end to the season, there is no taking away from the fact that Leeds United enjoyed a very productive campaign last term and one of the key figures in the Whites’ success was defender Kyle Bartley, who arrived on loan from Swansea City.
Bartley made a total of 50 appearances for Leeds at the heart of the defence and was arguably among the best players for the Yorkshire based side last season, alongside Chris Wood and Pontus Jansson.
As a result, Leeds were keen on signing Bartley on a permanent basis this summer but with manager Garry Monk departing for Middlesbrough, the move was believed to be in jeopardy.
However, the Yorkshire Evening Post have revealed that Leeds still maintain interest in signing Bartley and will look to do so, irrespective of which manager arrives at the Elland Road hotseat.
