Leeds United are yet to discover whether captain Jonny Howson will sign a new contract with the club, with Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers reportedly interested, according to The Mirror.
However, appointed full-time skipper during the summer, has become a influential member of Simon Grayson's promotion chasers.
The 23-year-old is currently considering a new contract offer from United, but is yet to make a decision.
United's executive Shaun Harvey confirmed: “Discussions have been ongoing since the August transfer window shut.
“We have made an offer to Jonny and we are waiting for a response.”
Reports suggest that Premier League pair Bolton and Blackburn are both interested, and United are worried the player will have his head turned by an increase pay packet.
Howson is currently United's longest serving player, after making his club debut five years ago.
