Whites want Danish full-back Kristian Pedersen

Leeds United are interesting in signing FC Union Berlin left-back Kristian Pedersen, report German newspaper Bild.

The former Danish under-21 international has appeared 32 times for the Bundesliga 2 club this campaign notching one goal and three assists from defence.

Pedersen has also played in the left midfield position on a handful of occasions this season but the Whites are said to be the front runners for his signature if Union Berlin do decide to cash in on his services this summer.
