Leeds winger Stuart Dallas is a target for Norwich City ahead of the summer transfer window closing, according to reports in Yorkshire.

The 26-year-old Northern Ireland international is in the final year of his contract at Elland Road and the Yorkshire Evening Post claim this has alerted the Canaries to a potential deal.

Dallas was signed from Brentford two years ago for a reported fee in the region of £1.3million and has scored nine goals in 89 appearances for City’s Championship rivals.

His profile was given a boost in June when he scored a vital late winner for his country in a World Cup qualifier in Azerbaijan and he has so far scored once in five games for Leeds this season.

The report states: “Norwich City are lining up a bid for Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas before the transfer window closes.
