Leeds United have shown great form under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa but a sequence of three consecutive defeats across all competitions has shown there is still plenty of work to be done.

The Peacocks could use the January transfer window to strengthen their push for promotion and The Daily Mail (Live blog, 12:25) states that Bielsa’s side are keeping tabs on highly-rated Kilmarnock forward Eamonn Brophy.

The Scotland U21 international has shone north of the border this season, scoring eight goals in 17 league games to help propel Kilmarnock into a surprise title fight against Edinburgh giants Celtic and Rangers.

Leeds consider the forward, who models himself on former Elland Road favourite Robbie Keane, as a decent option to bolster their ranks and are exploring a potential move that would bring the 22-year-old to English football.

The Peacocks have struggled for consistency in front of goal this season but have two decent options in Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford, although the latter is currently sidelined through injury.
