Pundit: 'I can see Cantwell in a Leeds shirt' as move from Norwich on the cards
Todd Cantwell would “fit in really well” at Leeds United, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Arsenal striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 23-year-old could play in “multiple positions across that midfield” for the Whites.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this month (1 January) that Cantwell is on the radar of Leeds United as they look to add quality.
Football Insider revealed last month (18 December) that the Whites are looking to add two midfielders, with an attack-minded player among the priorities for director of football Victor Orta.
Cantwell is out of contract at the end of this season.
However, Norwich have the option of extending his Carrow Road deal by an extra 12 months.

Campbell claimed he can already see the midfielder wearing the famous white shirt of Leeds United.
“I think he could play multiple positions across that midfield for Marcelo Bielsa,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“I think he’d fit in really well at Leeds. He’s high-energy, good on the ball – I can see him in that white Leeds shirt to be honest.”
A Leeds source told this site on Tuesday (11 January) that the club can only make loan signings this month due to financial fair play restrictions.
Cantwell has played just 10 times for Norwich this season as his contract continues to wind down.
As per Transfermarkt, the 23-year-old has played in six different midfield roles during his professional career.
Leeds United sit 16th in the Premier League and are eight points clear of the drop zone.
The Whites face West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday for the second time in seven days.
