Leeds United 'want' Nottingham Forest's Sheffield United-linked midfielder
According to journalist Alan Nixon on his Patreon page, Leeds have reignited their interest and want O'Brien to join.
The Forest midfielder has also been linked with Leeds’ Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United this summer, although a move away from the City Ground has not materialised.
O’Brien found himself out of favour at Forest last season and was set to move to Blackburn Rovers on loan in January.
However, the move fell through and he instead linked up with Leeds icon Mateusz Klich at MLS outfit D.C. United.
He is no stranger to Yorkshire having ascended the youth ranks at Huddersfield Town and spent time on loan at Bradford City.
However, he is not the only midfielder to have been linked with Leeds, who are said to be the frontrunners to land Glen Kamara from Rangers.
