Leeds United may consider a summer move for Sheffield United shot-stopper Aaron Ramsdale.
That is according to ex-Leeds forward Noel Whelan, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the Yorkshire rivals met at Elland Road on Saturday.
Ramsdale made seven saves and completed 15 out of 18 passes as his side were beaten 2-1 by Leeds.
Only Leeds’ Illan Meslier (121) and West Brom’s Sam Johnstone (130) have made more saves than Ramsdale (120) in the Premier League this season (Wyscout).
Whelan was not impressed with the Blades on Saturday and suggests that Ramsdale is the only player who might be on Leeds’ radar ahead of the summer.
He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “Ramsdale could be a possibility they’re looking at.
“There isn’t really anyone in that side bar the goalkeeper that you’d have a good look at. With that being said, is he going to get ahead of Meslier right now?
“Sheffield United are not the same team they were last season. We had opportunities we should have taken but Ramsdale had a good game.
“Performance-wise, they aren’t getting forward and there’s a lack of belief. So you’d imagine a few of their players will be leaving in the summer.”
Ramsdale began his second career spell with Sheffield United in the summer after signing from Bournemouth for an £18.5million fee.
Meslier made his move to Leeds permanent in July after spending the promotion-winning 2019-2020 season on loan at Elland Road as understudy to Kiko Casilla.
