Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa lines up raid for Liverpool flop Cameron Brannagan

Leeds are tracking former Liverpool midfielder Cameron Brannagan following his impressive exploits for Oxford.

The Elland Road heavyweights are already well stocked in midfield.

However, Brannagan has looked the real deal at the League One outfit and Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t want to miss out on a potential bargain.

The 23-year-old will have just one year remaining on his current Oxford deal in the summer and Karl Robinson might be tempted to sell rather than risk losing him for nothing in 12 months.

According to Football Insider , Leeds scouts have watched him on several occasions as they weigh up a formal approach.

Brannagan has made 34 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring seven goals.

He started his career at Anfield, although failed to make the grade. After just three Premier League appearances he was sent packing.

If Bielsa gets his man, Brannagan could be back in the Premier League next season.

Leeds have got their promotion charge back on track and secured a 1-0 win over Reading on Saturday.

"It was a similar match to what we are used to playing,” Bielsa said in the aftermath.

“Generally we create more chances than the opponent, we have more possession than the opponent and today was this situation.

"There was a situation in the last minute for them, the number six became a striker and that created confusion that maybe we could have solved from the bench.

"This player had a clear chance and it was a very important save by Kiko Casilla.

“For some time we were better than the opponent and the save had a big impact."
