Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan is most likely to be Leeds United’s next signing in the January transfer window, according to a report.
Sky Sports’ live transfer blog regularly plugs its Football Whispers section, which claimed on Monday [07:52am] that Bogdan, 30, has a strong chance of becoming the next arrival at Elland Road with the transfer deadline now just a few days away.
Football Whispers, which gathers all transfer rumours across the globe and calculates the likelihood of them happening, rates it 4 out of 5 that Bogdan will join Leeds ahead of that deadline.
Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay reported on his personal Twitter account last week that the 20-times Hungary international would be a possible loan replacement for Andy Lonergan, who is said to be wanted by Championship rivals Sunderland.
Bit of transfer news: Carlisle looking to sign Mallik Wilks on loan. Sunderland like Andy Lonergan and could table a bid for him before the window closes. Leeds not in a rush to lose Lonergan but Liverpool's Adam Bogdan a possible loan replacement if he goes. #lufc

Bogdan is well down the pecking order at Anfield and has not made an appearance for the Premier League giants since May 2016 when he played in a 1-1 draw with West Brom at the Hawthorns.
The 6ft 3in colossus was sent out on loan to Wigan last season but suffered a serious knee injury and had to be recalled.
The former Bolton shot-stopper, who has spent a lot of his career as a second choice goalkeeper, had been in good form for Wigan before his knee injury, making 17 appearances and keeping six clean sheets.
