Leeds United are considering a possible loan move for Huddersfield Town left-back Scott Malone, according to ClubCall.

The former Fulham man joined newly-promoted Premier League side Huddersfield in the summer, but has since made just two appearances for the Terriers.

This has led to talks of a possible loan exit, with ClubCall reporting that West Yorkshire rivals Leeds are interested in the possibility of bringing him to Elland Road.

Whites boss Thomas Christiansen is expected to look for a left-back in January, the report states. This is despite the fact that Leeds did sign Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on loan from Manchester United in the summer.

The United man however has struggled to break into the team, while Leeds have still not replaced Charlie Taylor, who departed for Burnley.

There is expected to be competition from other Championship sides for Malone, while Huddersfield may yet decide to hang on to the 26-year-old as cover during a gruelling maiden Premier League campaign.
