Leeds United are being linked with a move for Stevenage winger Lawrie Wilson.

The versatile midfielder has impressed at Broadhall Way this season, most recently staying in Boro's 5-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday in midweek.

Reports in The Sun claim Simon Grayson was scouting the player at both that and their previous home game, with the Leeds United boss thought to be impressed by the 24-year-old's performances on both occasions.

Wilson has scored once in his eight appearances this season, and was an integral part of Stevenage's promotion campaign from Npower League Two last season.

It was a summer transfer window to forget for Simon Grayson at Elland Road, with the Leeds United boss failing to secure the services of a handful of targets.


 

However, the Whites have since added Mikael Forssell and Mika Vayrynen on free transfers, with the two Fins making a positive impact since their arrival in Yorkshire.

And the Leeds United manager is clearly evaluating his options for January, with Wilson now emerging as a legitimate target for the history-steeped club.
