Leeds have reportedly shown interest in the Turkish keeper
According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, Leeds United have expressed interest in Trabzonspor goalkeeper Uğurcan Çakır.

Former Leeds prospect could move again
Former Leeds United prospect Olly Casey could potentially be on the move again this summer as LancsLive have insisted he could leave Blackpool permanently if the right opportunity arises.
The defender was made his senior debut by former Los Blancos boss Marcelo Bielsa and shone alongside Charlie Cresswell at the heart of the Under-23 defense at Thorp Arch.
