Leeds have made a bid for AIK full-back Haukur Heidar Hauksson, according to a report.

Icelandic publication MBL claim that the Whites have placed a bid for the Swedish top flight player.

The 24-year-old right-back starred in 17 matches for AIK last season scoring five goals and providing two assists.

Hauksson was selected for Iceland’s inspiring Euro 2016 squad, and has seven previous caps, but he failed to make an appearance for his country during their impressive showing in the tournament.

Leeds are reportedly in the market for a right-back and have been linked with moves for Fleetwood’s Conor McLaughlin and free agent Reece Wabara.

Gaetano Berardi and youngster Lewie Coyle are manager Garry Monk’s current players on the right side of defence, although the latter also doubles up in midfield.

Monk will be hoping to secure the signing of Hauksson before Leeds’ Championship season gets underway against Queens Park Rangers on 7 August.

The Icelandic international still has two-years left on his contract.

The new Whites manager has been busy this summer, signing six players including young star Kemar Roofe for £3million from Oxford and ex-England international shot stopper Robert Green.
