Leeds United transfer rumours as Tottenham eye Nicolo Zaniolo, Gelhardt and Creswell near exit

Here are your Leeds United transfer rumours for Monday, January 23.

Tottenham interested in Nicolo Zaniolo

According to transfer oracle Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham are discussing a potential loan deal with an option to buy for AS Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo.

It is thought however that the Serie A side are only considering a permanent departure as things stand, with a price tag between €35million to €40million (£31m to £35m) being reported.

Zaniolo has recently been heavily linked with a move to Leeds after the 23-year-old reportedly declined to extend his contract with Roma.

Middlesbrough looking to sign Charlie Cresswell

According to the Sun, Michael Carrick is looking to sign Cresswell in a bid to bolster Middlesbrough's promotion charge.

The report states that Boro would look to 'break' the defender's loan at Millwall to complete a permanent transfer - should Jesse Marsch's side allow it. It is thought that a fee of £4million 'plus extras' would be enough to get a deal over the line for the 20-year-old.

Cresswell has featured 16 times in the Championship this season, showing his threat from set-pieces having scored four times for the Lions.

Leeds clear way for Joe Gelhardt departure

The Sun also report that Joe Gelhardt will be 'cleared to speak' to interested clubs this week over a loan deal.

Gelhardt is understood to favour a return to his former club Wigan Athletic, but Stoke City and Coventry City have now also joined Blackburn Rovers and Swansea City in the race for his signature.

The 20-year-old will only go to a team where he is guaranteed game time, and the Whites will be looking for a portion of Gelhardt's wages to be covered, along with possible bonuses and a potential loan fee.
