CHERRIES are in "advanced talks" to sign Leeds United defender Leif Davis on loan, according to reports.

Football Insider claim Cherries are "working on a deal" for the 21-year-old left-back.

Newcastle-born Davis came through the youth ranks at Morecambe before joining up with Leeds in 2018.

He has gone on to play 14 times under Marcelo Bielsa, including Premier League substitute appearances against Manchester City and Manchester United last season.

And the report says Davis is now close to completing a season-long loan switch to Cherries. He is primarily a left-back but can also play in the centre.

Leeds have strengthened their defence this summer with the addition of left-back Junior Firpo from Barcelona.

Cherries, who have also this week been linked with a move for free agent Scott Dann, appear keen to add to their defensive numbers following the departure of Cameron Carter-Vickers, who has returned to Tottenham following his loan spell.

Their only signing so far this summer has been former Brentford man Emiliano Marcondes.
