Leeds United are hopeful of re-signing winger Max Gradel from St Etienne when the transfer window opens next month.

BBC Radio Leeds understands that the Championship club are keen to bring the Ivory Coast international back to Elland Road, with new investment expected in January.

Gradel joined the French Ligue 1 side from Leeds for £3m in August 2011 and has scored 11 goals in 58 league games.

Leeds, who face Barnsley on Saturday, are currently sixth in the table.
