Leeds chasing German World Cup Star

LEEDS UNITED have been linked with an audacious move for former German international midfielder Torsten Frings.The 34-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen, who recently elected not to offer him a new deal, andreports suggest Leeds are in discussions to bring him to Elland Road.With Leeds in the market for an enforcer in the middle of the park, tough-tackling Frings, who won 79 caps for Germany and appeared in the 2002 and 2006 World Cup finals, would represent an attractive option.While largely being defensively-minded he is also able to operate across the midfield.

Money is likely to be a major issue with Frings – who won a Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich in 2004-05 – understood to have been one of Bremen’s top earners.Frings is also beleived to be attracting interest from a number of MLS clubs.
