Leeds United will try to sign Nathaniel Chalobah on loan from Chelsea in January, according to a report.

Leeds United have reportedly lined up a January loan move for Chelsea youngster Nathaniel Chalobah.

The 18-year-old is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest, but has struggled to make an impact and will return to Stamford Bridge when the deal expires next month.

According to The Mirror, Whites boss Brian McDermott is keen on adding the England Under-21 international to his midfield ranks as he plots promotion from the Championship.

The Yorkshire side are currently eighth, two pints off sixth-placed Reading.

Chalobah, who recently signed a new five-year deal with the Blues, impressed during a loan spell with Watford last season.
