Your latest Leeds United headlines as Daniel Farke's side continue their Championship promotion push.

Leeds United continued their excellent start to 2024 with a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Rotherham United on Saturday, Crysencio Summerville netting a second-half brace after Patrick Bamford's controversial opener. The Whites have now won six consecutive Championship games and are just one point behind second-placed Southampton.

Leeds face another long away trip on Tuesday, this time heading to Swansea City - familiar territory for Joe Rodon, Dan James, Joel Piroe and January arrival Connor Roberts. And as Daniel Farke prepares for that trip to Wales, the YEP has your Monday morning headlines.

Rodon price-tag

Leeds might already be planning to make Rodon's loan permanent this summer but a move for the centre-back will not come cheap. Football Insider reports that Tottenham want between £10-15million for their man.

Rodon has been outstanding since making Elland Road his temporary home in the summer, starting 28 of Leeds' 31 Championship matches and being central to the league's second-tightest defence. The 26-year-old was up for sale last summer but Tottenham could not find a suitor willing to match their valuation, and so decided a loan exit was for the best.

The report adds that several Premier League clubs made initial enquiries about Rodon in January, but many were put off by the price-tag of up to £15m. Leeds' ability to pay such a sum might rest on their promotion success.

Gray interest remains

Premier League giants have not given up on the prospect of signing Archie Gray. HITC reports that Manchester City, Liverpool and Newcastle United 'remain interested' despite the 17-year-old recently signing a new long-term contract at Elland Road.

Gray committed his future to Leeds last month, penning a new deal that runs until the summer of 2028. But the breakout star remains on the radar of top Premier League clubs who were all exploring the possibility of signing him in January before that contract announcement.

The report also adds that Liverpool are interested in Harry Gray, the younger brother of Archie who is impressing in the Leeds academy. Harry, 15, is a striker and has been tipped to enjoy a similar level of success to his brother and many others in the Gray family.
