Leeds are reportedly locked in talks with Queens Park Rangers as they try and thrash out a deal for goalkeeper Paddy Kenny.

Paddy Kenny: Closing in on a move to Leeds

Leeds boss Neil Warnock has been given the green light to pursue a move for Kenny as he looks to be reunited with the former Bury and Sheffield United shot-stopper.

QPR are willing to let Kenny move on having brought in England international Robert Green on a free transfer last month.

Sky Sports understand that talks are taking place between both clubs with Leeds hoping to push through a deal for Kenny later this week with a number of other clubs monitoring the keeper's situation.

Warnock is a huge admirer of Kenny and hopes to make the 34-year-old his fourth signing of the summer after the arrivals of Jason Pearce, Adam Drury and Paul Green.
