Reliable journalist – Leeds set for Jan loan deal for 30-year-old from Premier League giants
Leeds United are set for a potential loan deal for Liverpool’s 30-year-old keeper Adam Bogdan, according to a reliable journalist.
Phil Hay from the Yorkshire Evening Post said that Sunderland fancy their keeper Andy Lonergan and that they could put in a bid before the end of the January window.
He went on to say that while Leeds don’t want to lose Lonergan, they could seal a deal for Bogdan from the Premier League giants on a temporary deal.
Hay posted the news on his personal Twitter page on Thursday lunchtime.
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

In the tweet Hay also mentioned that League Two club Carlisle were looking to sign striker Malik Wilkes on loan.
Football Insider verdict:
Lonergan would be a loss to Leeds and it might bring about deja vu for Leeds fans after they lost a highly experienced goalkeeper at the end of last season. However, Bogdan would be a brilliant replacement and potentially a decent upgrade. The 30-year-old Hungarian international has made six appearances for Liverpool and is a highly-rated stopper who has vast Championship experience with Bolton. Leeds fans would be excited if this one came off.
