Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster could soon line up for Leeds United, according to football commentator Jim Proudfoot.
Leeds have been desperate to sign a goalkeeper this month, following Jamal Blackman returning to Chelsea after picking up an injury.

Newcastle’s Karl Darlow and Fulham Fabri have seen their names linked in recent weeks, however according to Proudfoot, Forster could be the Lilywhites’ man.
Saints manager Ralph Hasenhütll claimed yesterday that Forster wasn’t part of his plans, and was free to play Under-23s games in order to put himself in the shop window ahead of finding a new club.
And it now looks like that move may come sooner than expected, with the England international reportedly close to linking up with Marcelo Bielsa and his promotion hopeful side.
However, according to Sky Sports News, Leeds could also be close to signing Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla, which further complicates the clubs interest in the Saints stopper.
