Leeds United are attempting to secure a loan deal for defender Matt Mills, despite seeking a permanent deal earlier in the summer.

Mills is currently at Bolton Wanderers and he had been linked with a permanent switch to Elland Road, but reports suggest Leeds are now just looking at a loan deal for the 26-year-old.

The defender has previously worked with Leeds manager Brian McDermott after he played for Reading between 2009 and 2011.

From Reading, he joined Leicester where he made 25 appearances, finding the net on one occasion, against Southampton.

He joined Bolton last summer, signing a three-year contract, but missed a large chunk of the season due to an injury sustained in December.

Mills is reportedly on £25,000 a week at the Reebok Stadium and Leeds are expected to make an offer of a season-long loan in the coming days. This is because they are unwilling to meet the £1m asking price which has been set for the defender.
