Leeds United have joined the battle for Preston North End goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

Lonergan is also interesting Everton and Aston Villa.

The Mirror says Leeds United boss Simon Grayson has made an inquiry for Lonergan - as he looks for Kasper ­Schmeichel's successor.

Grayson is keen on experienced North End shot-stopper Lonergan but will only pay a bargain fee for him after he fell out of favour under Phil Brown.
