The experienced goalkeeper is frustrated at his recent lack of first-team opportunities following the loan signing of Stoke City Jack Butland.

Kenny has not featured for Leeds since the the start of February and not been included in the matchday squad with Alex Cairns promoted to the bench as cover for Butland.

The former Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers star, who played through the injury barrier for Leeds earlier this season, has been left out the first-team plans by Brian McDermott despite being fully fit.

Kenny is now weighing up a move away from Elland Road as it appears he does not figure in McDermott's long-term plans going forward.

The news has alerted a number of Championship clubs to Kenny's possible availability this summer with the 35-year-old entering the final year of his contract at Leeds this summer.

Several Premier League sides are also keeping tabs on Kenny with the former Republic of Ireland international seen as someone who could provide experienced cover in the goalkeeping department.
