According to Sky Sports News reporter Rob Dorsett, Leeds United could revive its bet on Leicester City winger Demarai Gray in the summer when he becomes a free agent.

The Elland Road team linked up with the Premier League winner during the summer transfer window, but a move didn’t work out.
Gray has only six months left on his current contract at Elland Road and is ready to go for nothing at the end of the season.
However, an exit could still happen before the end of the January transfer window, with Marseille from Ligue 1 and other European clubs considering a move.
Leeds are not looking to do any business this month as head coach Marcelo Bielsa is satisfied with his current squad, but the opportunity to sign the Leicester player for free in the summer could be too good to turn down.
The 24-year-old is not in coach Brendan Rodgers’s plans and has played just 18 minutes of Premier League football this season.
Gray has played 133 top-level games for the Foxes since joining them from Birmingham City in January 2016, scoring 10 goals, and has the experience Leeds want.
Having struggled to reach top speed despite his enormous potential, learning with Bielsa in Leeds might finally get the best of him.
