Leeds United are eyeing Stoke City midfielder Michael Tonge.

The Yorkshire Post says Tonge is believed to be one of the options Neil Warnock is considering as the Leeds manager bids to solve a shortage of central midfielders ahead of Saturday's game against Cardiff City.

The 29-year-old played under Warnock for seven years at Bramall Lane and he is available on loan after Stoke City left him out of their 25-man Premier League squad.
