Leeds are just one of a host of clubs who are tracking Inter Milan youngster Ryan Nolan, according to a report.

With Pontus Jansson departing for Brentford, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is looking for cover for the centre-back and the 20-year-old is on United’s radar.

Pundit Arena report that Brighton & Hove Albion and Leicester City are also keeping tabs on the young centre-back, who is originally from Limerick.

The report claims Nolan is set to leave the Serie A side this summer after four years in Milan, in which time he has graduated to skippering Inter’s U19 side and seen himself called up to the match-day squad for their Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna in February.

He has yet to make his senior debut for Inter, but he impressed with his consistency last season and made 42 appearances for Inter’s youth side.

Capped once for the Republic of Ireland under-18s Nolan, who has one year left on his deal, looks all set to return closer to home after previously playing for Torre Pacheco in Spain.
