Leeds United have turned their attention to beating West Brom in the race to sign Wigan Athletic midfielder Joe Williams, Football Insider can reveal.
This site revealed last week that the newly-promoted Baggies are plotting a move for Williams following Wigan’s relegation and administration.
A Leeds source has told Football Insider they are also closely monitoring Williams’ situation and have set their sights on a potential deal.
Tellingly, Wigan are ready to make Williams available for around £1.5million as they look to raise much-needed cash.
Joe Gelhardt has already joined Leeds in a deal that was completed last Monday for £1m plus add-ons.
