Leeds United are understood to be in talks with Fulham over a deal to sell striker Matt Smith.

Fulham have approached United about the 25-year-old forward just two weeks after Smith signed a new three-year contract at Elland Road.

Smith committed his future to Leeds on the back of a bid for him from Millwall but Leeds have signed a number of new strikers and Smith has started only one league game this season.

The likelihood of Smith moving to Craven Cottage is said to be “50-50” following discussions this morning.

A transfer to London would reunite Smith with ex-Leeds captain Ross McCormack who joined Fulham in a £10.75m deal in July.
