Leeds have confirmed Chelsea are interested in goalkeeper Scott Carson.
The Blues have held talks with Leeds officials over a possible deal for the young custodian. Carson seems set to leave Elland Road after turning down
a new deal at the club. The England Under-21 star's current contract expires at the end of the season and it appears Leeds would be willing to sell
him now rather than a tribunal deciding his valuation in the summer. Liverpool and West Brom have also been linked with Carson, but Chelsea are hoping
to beat their rivals to the player by opening talks with Leeds.
