Nathaniel Adjei, a reputed target for Sunderland, has been linked to Leeds United.

Recently, it was reported that Preston North End, Celtic, and Rangers were all interested in Adjei, and that Sunderland and Middlesbrough were engaged in a “transfer race” for his services.

The 21-year-old Ghanian defender is attracting interest from Championship clubs, according to national reports.

They state that the trio of second-tier clubs want the defender to help bolster their respective promotion pushes as they eye a spot in the 20-team Premier League.

It is also said that Rangers have sent scouts to watch Adjei, who plays for Hammarby IF in Allsvenskan, Sweden with fresh reports now also adding that Leeds United are keen.

It has been said that any club wanting to sign Adjei, would have to pay around £2.6million to £3.5 million mark for his signature.

Sunderland are well-stocked at centre-back with Luke O’Nien and Dan Ballard Tony Mowbray’s first choice currently. The Black Cats also have Nectar Triantis and Jensen Seelt alongside Dennis Cirkin, Aji Alese and Tari Hume who can deputise in defence.
