Leeds will compete with Newcastle for Chelsea fullback James

Leeds United will compete with Newcastle United for Chelsea fullback Reece James.

The Sun says Newcastle and Leeds are expected to tussle it out for James in January.

Steve Bruce has a strong interest in the right-back, who has broken into Frank Lampard's first-team squad this season.

The Newcastle boss hopes he can convince Chelsea chiefs to loan out the 19-year-old to Tyneside as the Magpies fight to stay in the Premier League.

Bruce is set to make some calls ahead of the January transfer window in order to get ahead of the chasing pack.
