Leeds United could be set to shock the Championship with a potential move for Bristol City pair Joe Bryan and Aden Flint.
The club have so far been extremely active in this summers transfer market, picking up players in the positions that are needed and bolstering there squad.
The only two positions left that still need sufficient backup are left back and centre back respectively, this is where the Bristol City pair come in to play.
Both come off a very tough season as Bristol fought off the prospect of relegation and could be wanting more from their careers than a repeat this coming season.
It's understood that the club have made contact with Bristol for the park, having first been interested in club captain Aden Flint.
The move would surely be a heavy investment and statement of intent with both players commanding a fee of over £2.5million.
Flint, a 6'3 no nonsense defender is seen as a perfect partner for Leeds' Pontus Jansson and the pair could be part of a defensive dynasty should they be out together.
Strong, stern and a leader on the pitch, the former Swindon man could be a brilliant capture for the club and at only 28-years old could be with Leeds for some time. He's also able to pitch in with a few goals having scored 28 in 170 appearances for Bristol.
Bryan on the other hand is a marauding left back with the ability to not only be a key defensive signing, but a potential support for Leeds' new attacking quartet.
The 23-year old is adapt at playing as a wingback in a 3-5-2 formation and is very capable at playing as a left midfielder should he be asked.
With Bryan's contract only having two years remaining, it remains to be seen whether Bristol would be forced into any sale, but never say never in this day and age.
The duo would link up with former Robins defender Luke Ayling and Pontus Jansson to create one of the strongest back lines in the league.
If Leeds make this move, the club will surely be a force to be reckoned with next season. Can the deal be done? Adam Pope says yes, Phil Hay says no. You decide!
