According to the print edition of Sunday Sun (page 61), the Whites want to add to their midfield and Freeman has been identified as a target.
Freeman joined the Blades in the summer but he has failed to hold down a regular starting berth under Chris Wilder. A move away from the club could be the best option for him right now.
Freeman has played just 11 games so far this season.
The 27-year-old will want to play more often and Leeds could provide him with that platform. Before his move to Sheffield United, he was a star in the Championship with QPR. He could make an immediate impact on Bielsa’s team.
It will be interesting to see if Leeds United can agree on a fee with Sheffield United now. Freeman isn’t a regular starter for the Blades and therefore a reasonable offer might be enough to get the deal done.
The midfielder can play on the left or in a central attacking role. He will add creativity and goals to the Leeds team.
Freeman is very good with set-pieces as well and his arrival will add a new dimension to Leeds’ attack.
