The Leeds boss wants to make Blackwell his assistant boss at Leeds now that Eddie Gray and Brian Kidd have left the club.

"I have had a phone call to say Peter Reid has asked Sheffield United's permission to speak to me," said former Huddersfield Town goalkeeper.

"At the moment I have not spoken to Peter Reid, but yes, an approach has just been made."

"I don't know Peter at all. They (Sheffield Utd) have asked me if I would like to speak to them. But until I speak to Peter I can't say a lot more."
