James Marshment from TEAMtalk reports.
Leeds’ co-owner Andrea Radrizzani – who will soon have full ownership of the club – will be financing a busy summer for the Championship giants.
And one of the first deals in their sights is Howson – with Norwich looking to make a number of savings ahead of the new season.
Howson, who turns 29 later this month, is a born-and-bred Leeds fan, grew up in Morley and came through the ranks at Elland Road before finances dictated he was sold and he joined Norwich 2012.
Now Norwich are looking to sell Howson in order to raise funds and would like to get close to £4m for him, with Leeds ready to make a move.
Brighton and Burnley have both expressed an interest to take him to the Premier League, but TEAMtalk has been told that Leeds are in pole position to bring Howson ‘home’.
