Leeds United are preparing to make an offer for Rotherham winger Kieran Agard.

The former Arsenal academy and Everton player has caught the eye of Leeds' owner Massimo Cellino after scoring 25 goals for Rotherham, in all competitions last season.

Cellino was watching from the stands at the New York stadium when Agard scored in Rotherham's 3-1 playoff semi-final win over Preston North End last night.

Leeds scouts are no stranger to the League One star's talents, having watched the 24-year-old intently throughout the season. 

Agard will be out of contract in the summer, so cash-strapped Leeds will be able to acquire his services without paying a transfer fee.

But with Rotherham on the verge of promotion to the Championship, The Millers boss Steve Evans understandably wants to hang on to his most prolific striker.

Evans told Football League World: "Kieran has to be up there as one of the players of the year in League One.

“For a right-sided player to get so many goals, if it had happened at many other clubs they would have been touting him about. But we don’t want to sell.

"We cannot put a value on 
Kieran. As far as I am concerned, unless someone offers something totally outrageous for him, he won’t be going anywhere else.”
