Leeds United are set to make their second signing from Aston Villa this year in the form of Australian Chris Herd, according to The Mirror.

After signing Barry Bannan last season, Simon Grayson is looking for at Villa, with whom he was linked with earlier this summer, as another source to help bolster his squad.

Leeds lost their opening game of the season and are eager to add to their squad, however due to Herd's versatility, Villa boss Alex McLeish could be unwilling to let him go.


However, Leeds' trump card, to tempt Villa into letting Herd go for the season is to pay his wages for the entire season, instead of a split between the two clubs.

Villa have failed to reinforce their defence, but have added Shay Given, while Leeds' defensive problems were exposed on numerous occasions against Southampton on Saturday.
