As per the reports, they have already held preliminary talks with the Welsh club. Apparently, Leeds were optimistic about a deal but Swansea’s relegation could complicate matters.
The report adds that the former Arsenal player is keen on a return to Elland Road this summer and that could prove to be a big advantage for the Whites. Bartley was on loan at Leeds United during the 2016/17 season.
Bartley will add much-needed experience and quality to the Leeds defence next season. The Whites want him to lead their push for promotion along with a few other new signings.
Reports claim that Barnsley full-back Andy Yiadom and Swansea City forward Oli McBurnie are targets for the Championship outfit as well.
Leeds also have the option to sign Jerry Mbakogu for around £3m.
The Whites will need to get their summer recruitment spot on in order to challenge for promotion next season and signing Kyle Bartley would be the perfect start.
