Leeds United will definitely need a new goalkeeper in the summer and have a huge chance to solve what has been a major problem area by signing Rangers shot-stopper Wes Foderingham.

The Scottish Sun has reported that Foderingham, 27, is set to quit Ibrox in the summer as the Gers close in on re-signing Allan McGregor from Hull – and that hands Leeds the perfect opportunity to find their new No 1 for the 2018/19 season.

Foderingham is understood to be wanted by both Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday in the summer so the Whites will have to gazump both of their Championship rivals if they want to sign the former Swindon man.

The goalkeeper has been a mainstay for Rangers in the past few seasons and has made 37 appearances in all competitions this term, keeping 11 clean sheets.

Many regard him as being better than Celtic’s Craig Gordon between the sticks and he has even had dreams of one day getting a call-up to the England squad.

Moving to the Championship would surely boost his chances of realising his international dream and with him reportedly set to quit the second-placed Scottish Premiership club, Leeds director of football Victor Orta should definitely be having a look consdering how bad Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan have been this season.

If both of those 2017 signings are binned in the coming months, Foderingham is signed and Bailey Peacock-Farrell continues his development as the back-up options, Leeds will have their goalkeeper options sorted for years to come.
