Leeds, Aston Villa go head-to-head for Bologna defender Filip Helander

Bologna defender Filip Helander is attracting English interest.

Corriere di Bologna says Leeds United and Aston Villa are both eyeing Helander for the winter market.

Helander, 24, is tied to Bologna until 2019 and on a relatively modest salary.

Championship promotion hopefuls Villa and Leeds are both chasing the Sweden international for the January market.

Helander is keen on a move, with Bologna's one hope of keeping the defender is offering him a pay-rise.
