Leicester City defender Matt Mills could be new manager Neil Warnock`s first signing at Leeds United.
Reports suggest that the Leicester club captain, who joined Leicester from Reading last summer for a fee in excess of £3 million is no longer in the plans of foxes manager Nigel Pearson.
Mills hasn`t played in Leicester`s last two games, since their loss at Watford and he was not named in the clubs 16 for the win at Derby County on Thursday night.
Warnock has stated that he is desperate to add to Leeds defensively with the club having conceded 48 goals in 32 games already this season.
The 25 year old is an experienced central defender having played over 200 games since making his debut in 2004.
Mills started his career at Southampton but was snapped up by Premier League side Manchester City in 2006 for £250,000 after just twenty senior appearances.
He made just two appearances for City before signing for Doncaster Rovers in 2007 on loan. He spent most of the season with Doncaster, making 40 appearances and helping them to promotion from League One.
He signed a permanent deal at the Keepmoat the following summer and was an almost ever present as he helped them establish themselves in the championship.
His form for Doncaster saw fellow championship side Reading pay £2 million for the defender in the summer of 2009.
Mills was the talisman in the Reading defence as they reach the play off final last season. He scored in the defeat at Wembley in the final against Swansea.
Sven Goran Eriksson moved for the defender in the summer and he had been an almost ever present at the Walker Stadium this season, making 31 appearances before his recent exclusion from the squad.
Mills has also represented England at both under 18 and 19 levels.
His disciplinary record is a major flaw with him receiving 41 yellow cards and 7 reds since the start of the 2007/08 season.
