By Dominic Toner
Gillingham playmaker Bradley Dack is trying to force a move away from the club and his representatives are trying to find a solution, according to a report.
The Mail claimed on their transfer news blog (Tuesday, 1:37pm) that the English attacker could be looking to depart Gillingham, with Leeds a possible alternative for him.
The report details that the 23-year-old fancies a move to Elland Road, who are currently fourth-placed in the Championship.
Dack is a highly rated player at Gillingham and won the League One Player of the Season award at the Football League awards for the 2015/16 campaign.
He enjoyed a sensational season, scoring 15 goals and supplying 10 assists in 44 appearances.

The attacking midfielder usually plays in the number 10 role behind the striker and has continued to be effective this season.
Dack has managed four goals and five assists this term and fancies a move to Leeds to continue his development.
The Whites are currently wrapping up a deal for attacker Alfonso Pedraza, but have been keen to bolster their options and Dack is keen on a move.
Football Insider verdict:
Dack is a player that is well recognised in the Football League and it’s believed he has the qualities to play at a higher level that League One. He has proven himself in the division and a step up to the Championship would be a great step for him. Leeds are in need of more attacking firepower as Garry Monk’s side chase promotion. The Whites have talisman Chris Wood scoring the goals, but he has not had enough support from the other attacking positions. Dack could be a good fit at the Yorkshire giants as he is intelligent in possession, has an eye for goal and would fit into Monk’s attacking philosophy. They may be on the verge of adding Pedraza to their squad, but Leeds could do with a strong squad if they are to maintain their form.
