A product of the Nurnberg academy, Erras has primarily featured as a defensive midfielder this season. But the German can also fill in at centre-back with equal competence. (h/t Daily Mail)
The midfielder’s contract is on the verge of expiry, which has led to him attracting a flurry of interest from a number of second-division clubs in the Championship. (h/t Daily Mail)
Leeds United are yet to finalise on their transfer targets, with the club’s plans hinging on whether they earn promotion to the Premier League.
However, as per the report, the Whites are likely to explore the free agent and the loan market, as finances have taken a huge hit due to the coronavirus crisis. This has made Erras an attractive prospect for the Whites.
As things stand, Leeds are sitting atop the Championship table. Marcelo Bielsa’s side have accumulated 71 points from 37 games.
The EFL have confirmed that the season will resume from June 20. Leeds United will take on Cardiff City on June 21 away from home.
