Thomas Christiansen would secure his best transfer deal of the summer at Leeds if he fends off interest from four Championship clubs to sign Reading ace Jordan Obita.

The Sun claims Leeds’ Championship rivals Fulham, Middlesbrough, Hull and Birmingham are after the 23-year-old left-back, who starred in Reading’s 2016-17 campaign that saw them reach the play-off final.
