The Whites have made Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill a target for the summer according to Sky Sports News.
The 23-year-old managed six goals and four assists last season as the Robins pushed their playoff ambition to the final day. He was instrumental in their push to the Premier League
Josh started his professional career at Preston North End where he managed three seasons at Deepdale which ended with a loan move to Barnsley, leading to his contract expiring, therefore getting a move to Ashton Gate.
Lee Johnson admired Josh Brownhill’s ability after managing him at Barnsley before his reign at Bristol City, which is why the move came as no surprise to the Robins fans.
The Warrington born midfielder has also gained interest from some Premier League clubs including Brighton and newly promoted Sheffield United.
Why would there be a need to get the 23-year old in at Elland Road however? With Jack Clarke being linked away from the club he is a possible suitor. Josh tends to penetrate quite deep from the midfield role which has lead to his goals this season, as well as being that creative spark in the heart of the midfield for Bristol City last season, leading to him only missing one game in the league.
Why would the Robins sell? With the Playoff chasers apparently recording over £25 million in sales last summer, as well as this summer already selling academy outfit Lloyd Kelly to Bournemouth for an apparent £13 million, their squad is very high valued and they would therefore not drive a low evaluation for the in-demand Englishmen.
