Leeds defender Tom Pearce is being eyed as a necessity signing for Greek Super League side Aris Thessaloniki, according to SDNA.

The Kleanthis Vikeldis Stadium natives are expected to be in the market for a new left-sided full-back ahead of the new campaign, as manager Savvas Pantelidis feels the position is currently a weak aspect of his squad ahead of their berth in next season’s Europa League.

Las Palmas’ Dani Castellano is also in the running to improve Pantelidis’ options, with one of the Spaniard or Pearce expected to join the Greek side this summer.

Leeds are already understood to be open to the Whites product leaving Elland Road this year, given he failed to make a significant impact under Marcelo Bielsa in the 2018/19 term before joining Scunthorpe on loan.

However, while United are open to offers for the Ormskirk-born 21-year-old, SDNA expect Aris to make a loan approach in the coming days, rather than opening a line of dialogue with Victor Orta over a permanent deal for the 6ft defender.

Pearce has so far represented the senior United squad on ten occasions and scored the opening goal as we beat Barnsley 2-1 in April 2018, but was not called on by Bielsa in the Championship since October, as a foot injury ruled him out of action before joining Scunthorpe in the winter.

  • We were short of players last season, yet we continue to sell without permanent replacements, can’t you see without a doubt you need a decent centre back and goalkeeper, not players going pass there sell by dates just at Leeds for a pay day, open your eyes, 90% of supporters can’t all be wrong, give us something to get excited about, let’s see the boards commitment, time for action not rumours come on you Leeds ????
