According to Sky Sports, Championship outfit Leeds are deep into talks with Queens Park Rangers over the potential signing of their veteran goalkeeper, Paddy Kenny.
Leeds manager Neil Warnock has been given the go-ahead by his club to pursue Kenny, a move that would reunite Warnock with the former Sheffield United and Bury keeper.
As for QPR, the release of the 34 year old Kenny would not affect them drastically, considering that they just brought in English international goalkeeper Robert Green on a free transfer from West Ham earlier this summer.
Talks are currently taking place between the clubs, with Leeds hoping to finalize a deal for Kenny as soon as this week. They will want to conclude talks quickly, as a number of other clubs are monitoring the current situation. Warnock has expressed his respect and admiration for the QPR keeper a number of times in the past, and will hope to make him the fourth signing by Leeds this summer. They have already brought in Jason Pearce, Paul Green, and Adam Drury.
Kenny has made 7 international appearances, representing the Republic of Ireland. He was an integral component of the QPR squad that won promotion to the Premier League two seasons ago, and barely avoided relegation this past term.
