Premier League striker still No.1 target for Leeds United



Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty is still a Leeds United target this January transfer window, and the Whites are refusing to give up in their bid to land the Northern Ireland international, reports The Sun


Norwich want the 28-year-old off their books, but Leeds prefer to take him on loan with a view to a permanent transfer at the end of the season.

The West Yorkshire outfit are even prepared to offer £20,000-a-week to take him on loan.

Steve Evans is keen to bolster his squad this month and has so far added winger Mustapha Carayol on loan from Middlesbrough, for the rest of the season.

He is looking to add to his striking department in order to get goals that could push Leeds towards a late play-off charge.

Evans is keen for Mirco Antenucci to stay at Elland Road but the Italian striker is out of contract at the end of the season, and has been linked with a return to his homeland this summer.

After going seven games unbeaten, Leeds have lost their last two on the bounce which sees them sit in 17th place in the Championship, eight points from the relegation places and and 13 away from the play-off places.

What do you think to the news Leeds fans? Should Leeds be prepared to offer that much money a week for Lafferty? Let us know in the comments section below!
