Leeds United lead a trio of Championship clubs interested in signing highly rated Stevenage winger Lawrie Wilson reports

The 24-year-old has attracted interest from a host of clubs after turning in a number of impressive performances at Broadhall Way in recent months, and the midfielder has been instrumental in the club's rise from the Conference to League One over the past few seasons.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson is looking to strengthen his Whites squad when the transfer window reopens in January, and is considering an offer to bring the midfielder to Elland Road in the New Year.

However, Leeds are likely to face competition from the likes of Cardiff City and Watford - who have also been credited with an interest in Wilson.

With 18 months still to run on his current contract, Stevenage would likely find it hard to reject a sizeable offer for the player if Leeds, or any other of Wilson's suitors firm up their interest.

The former Charlton trainee joined The Boro in 2007, and under the stewardship of Graham Westley has developed into a key player for the club.
