Burnley were also recently linked with a double move for up and coming Irish youngsters Kevin Long and Enda Stevens.
Long. a 19-year-old centre-half has made three first-team appearances for Cork City after captaining their FAI Youth Cup and Munster Cup teams during 2009.
Preston and Charlton were understood to be also interested in securing his services and it was understood Leeds had gone one step further and actually made a bid for him.
Enda Stevens is a 19 year old left-back with St. Patrick's at Richmond Park and the talent has already been trialed by Nottingham Forest, Hull, Stockport and Yeovil.
