It has been reported by Tom Barclay of The Sun that Bristol City and Leeds United are showing interest in Wigan Athletic defender Reece Wabara.
The Manchester City graduate and former Doncaster Rovers and Barnsley defender has been particularly impressive of late, which has seemingly attracted the attention of Bristol City and Leeds United.
The versatile defender can play either as a centre-half or as a right back and this versatility is attractive for Championship sides that face the mammoth task of a 46 game season.
Reece Wabara is currently out of his contract and Lee Johnson and Bristol City are currently in talks with the defender about potentially moving to Ashton Gate.
Despite Bristol City being in talks with the defender, there is also interest from Leeds United who have previously been interested in signing Wabara but the move never materialised.
Wigan Athletic themselves are considering offering Wabara a new contract but the delay may have given Bristol City or Leeds United, the time to swoop in and sign Wabara from under Wigan’s nose.
Bristol City, Wigan and Leeds fans what do you make of the news? Would you like to see Wabara at your respective clubs or are there better alternatives out there? If so, who? Let us hear your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below!
