Leeds are rumoured to be joint favourites with Aston Villa to resign Adam Clayton with Sheffield Wednesday interested also.
It was a controversial move when Clayton departed Elland Road for the short journey to local rivals Huddersfield but a move which Clayton denies he forced.
The midfielder has been out of favour somewhat at the Riverside this season and there is no doubt that his ability and experience at this level would be invaluable to Leeds at this stage in a position that they are slightly short in.
A move that would potentially only be a loan if it were possible, Dummett was an influential part of Newcastle United’s promotion last season but ha been sidelined since the opening weekend.
The left-back made his return against Manchester City before the new year and it is a position that many feel Leeds need to strengthen in.
Gaetano Berardi has been playing out of position and filling in at left-back and has become a cult-hero at Elland Road with his passionate performances.
The Italian has said himself however that Leeds need better than him if they are to achieve promotion which, despite his good performances, is probably correct from an attacking point of view.
