Portsmouth boss Michael Appleton says the clubs striker Luke Varney is in talks with Leeds United about a move to Elland Road.
Fellow Portsmouth midfielder David Norris is also reportedly in talks with a clubs, with Leeds also reportedly keen on a move for him.
Speaking in the Portsmouth News, Appleton said, “I know Luke and David are close to agreeing moves elsewhere.
‘If that is the case, they may not be here when the players come back on Monday. To be honest, that is not something I would mind, either.
‘I believe Luke has been talking with Leeds. Whether that will happen this weekend or next week we`ll have to see.”
Varney expressed his own desire to sign for Leeds earlier this week according to the same paper, with Nottingham Forest also keen on the former Charlton Athletic and Derby County player.
Norris is believed to have already held talks with Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield Wednesday about a move to Hillsborough.
Leeds have already signed Jason Pearce from Portsmouth this summer but missed out on Joel Ward after failing to come up with the money for the versatile defender.
Financially stricken Portsmouth are still trying to move on their biggest earners. The Football League has refused to lift the transfer embargo on the club, who are still in administration, until they move on some of the existing squad.
