Middlesbrough forward David Nugent is keen on a move to Leeds United in January despite interest from a host of Championship clubs, according to the Sun.
Hugely experienced in the second tier, the one-cap England international is understood to have also attracted interest from the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and former club Preston.
Still, it’s believed the 31-year-old is keen on a move to Elland Road should he leave the Riverside upon the opening of the January market.
Moving to join Garry Monk’s promotion push in Yorkshire would not require him to move house, which is said to be a major factor in his preference.
Currently well out of the picture under Aitor Karanka at the Riverside, the former Portsmouth and Leicester City ace boasts a strong record in the Championship.
Across his 306 games there, Nugent has bagged 103 goals and helped two different sides to promotion during his career.
Leeds have largely been reliant on forward Chris Wood this season, with the Kiwi international hitting 11 goals amid their strong run under Monk.
