Sheffield United have submitted an enquiry for Leeds United defender Jason Pearce, according to FLW sources.
The 26-year-old centre-back has been at Leeds United since 2012, and has gone on to make 76 appearances for the Yorkshire club.
Blades manager Nigel Clough is keen to sign the Leeds captain before the end of the transfer window, however admits it may be beyond the club.
Speaking to journalist Jonathan Buchan, Clough said: ”
“We’ve looked at him (Pearce) certainly, I think he’ll be a bit beyond us with his contract at Leeds and Championship players and what they want might be a bit beyond us but we like Jason Pearce,”
“It’s going to be difficult to tempt somebody at a club to let somebody go who’s currently in the first team, but we are trying to do that if necessary”.
