Leeds head coach Steve Evans looks likely to try and sign Sunderland’s Liam Bridcutt on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

Bridcutt became a valuable part of Leeds’ midfield in November when he signed a deal that would keep him at Elland Road until the summer.

He has made 21 appearances for the Yorkshire outfit and has impressed all that have anything to do with the club, not least, Evans.

Next season is Bridcutt’s last under a Sunderland contract so the time for Leeds to make a move would be in the summer, but Evans was not giving too much away.

When asked if he would like to sign Bridcutt on a permanent deal at the end of the season, he told the Yorkshire Evening Post: ‘I think Liam’s very aware of what I think of him.

‘He’s very aware of what this football club thinks of him and the one thing I’m very aware of is that Liam loves playing for Leeds United. He never hides that.

‘Liam’s a top-quality player, he leads by example in his determination to win a game.’
