Leeds United have asked about loan deals for Leicester City left-back Luke Thomas and Tottenham’s Djed Spence. 

The Championship side are keen to bolster their options at full-back following their relegation from the top flight, despite keeping hold of Junior Firpo and Luke Ayling and adding former Norwich star Sam Byram on a free transfer this summer.

Leeds have endured a mixed bag of results to start the Championship season, winning and losing once and drawing twice under Daniel Farke.

Leaking goals is continuing to prove an issue for the Yorkshire club following their relegation, with Leeds conceding seven times in just four matches.

Farke’s side edged out an enthralling 4-3 draw away at Ipswich last weekend and take on bottom-of-the-league Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The Championship outfit have also opened talks with Leicester over a loan for Luke Thomas

Manchester City academy graduate Callum Doyle has been preferred to Thomas at left-back so far this season at Leicester, which has prompted Leeds to ask about the 22-year-old’s availability.

Meanwhile, Djed Spence has struggled for game time at Tottenham since his move to north London from Middlesbrough last summer.

The 23-year-old star seems to be Ange Postecoglou’s third choice at right-back given that both Pedro Porro and Emerson Royal have already started Premier League matches this season.

Spence excelled during the 2021-22 campaign while on loan at Nottingham Forest, registering two goals and five assists during Steve Cooper’s promotion season in the Championship.
