Leeds United reportedly make contact with Celtic regarding the availability of young defender Leo Hjelde.

Leeds United have reportedly identified Celtic youngster Leo Hjelde as a potential summer signing.

The Yorkshire giants are expected to make a number of first-team additions over the coming weeks after their impressive first season back in the Premier League.

However, Football Insider claims that Marcelo Bielsa and Victor Orta are also considering players for the future.

The report states that Leeds are keen to take advantage of 17-year-old Hjelde having just 12 months remaining on his contract at Celtic Park.

Despite his age, the Norwegian made 11 appearances on loan at Ross County last season, featuring in important wins over Dundee United and Hamilton Academical in May.

Celtic will likely offer Hjelde a long-term deal in a bid to fend off interest from South of the border.
