Leeds United are reportedly ready to make a cash offer for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, rather than look to complete a loan deal for the youngster.

Leeds United are reportedly keen to sign Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher on a permanent basis.

Having made an impact on loan at Charlton Athletic and Swansea City last season, the academy graduate is expected to spend his next temporary spell at a Premier League club.

As well as Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion, Leeds have been heavily linked with the 20-year-old.

However, according to the Daily Mail, the Yorkshire giants want to sign the England Under-21 international on a permanent basis.

The report suggests that Marcelo Bielsa is a big admirer of the prospect after being left impressed by his performances in the Championship.

As it stands, Chelsea are likely to insist on a loan exit for the player, who is highly regarded by Frank Lampard.
