According to BBC, Leeds United manager, Marcelo Bielsa is looking to sign the defender to help his team improve in their defence.

Leeds defender Robin Koch is currently nursing a long-term knee injury and the Argentine gaffer is desperately looking for a replacement.

It is understood that Lampard is open to let Tomori leave Stamford Bridge last summer but the English-born Nigerian centre-back stayed to fight for his place.

Tomori could have a better chance of getting more game time under his belts in Leeds who have been shaky in their defence this season despite their attractive attacking style of play.
