Leeds happy to pay £3m loan transfer fee plus £15m for Jarrod Bowen if promoted
Hull continue to price Jarrod Bowen out of a move to the Premier League but a switch to Championship side Leeds could be on the cards.
Newcastle, Aston Villa and Marcelo Bielsa's side are all chasing the attacker, who has 18 months remaining on his current deal.
Hull don't want to lose their star man and have slapped a £28m price tag on his head, according to the Sunday Mirror.
The Championship outfit are also open to a £3m loan deal, with an option to buy the player outright for £25m in the summer.
Leeds are happy with the temporary part of that offer but are only prepared to pay £15m for Bowen's services if they get promoted this term.

The Whites sit second in the league at present but have struggled in recent weeks as the chasing pack close on the automatic promotion spots.
Leeds will be hoping to beat their Premier League rivals to Bowen in the coming days.
And Hull boss Grant McCann hinted an exit could be in the offing.

“No bids for Jarrod, nothing has come to me,” he said this week.
“As is well publicised, there’s been a new and improved offer put to Jarrod and his representatives so we’re just waiting to hear back on that.
“Again, I haven’t sat with Jarrod. It’s really down to his representatives and the football club to get to the bottom of that. We’ll just concentrate on the football.

“I can see both sides of it. I can see that Jarrod is really enjoying his football and I can also see the side that if he doesn’t accept a deal then something has to be done really.
“At the minute we are where we are. We all know the situation. He’s got this year and an option (for a further 12 months) so hopefully he gets sorted one way or the other in the next few weeks.
“All I can do is concentrate on the team and concentrate on Jarrod while he’s here. Hopefully he’s here for a long time. If he’s not then he’s not. I don’t worry myself with that too much.”
