Leeds are lacking a match winning formula right now. Though unbeaten they have drawn five of their six games and are struggling to find the right balance in attack.

Meanwhile, a host of Championship clubs are being linked with the loan signing of one of the hottest prospects in English football. Bolton, Cardiff and Derby are all reported to be interested in the signing of Manchester United's James Wilson.

Why aren't Leeds trying to sign him? Of course there is the rivalry that exists between the two clubs, but it's a rivalry that now exists only in the minds of both sets of fans rather than the clubs themselves.

Liam Miller and Scott Wootton have made the journey from Old Trafford to Elland Road in the last decade and there's no reason why Wilson shouldn't follow them. It's a move that would suit both clubs.

Leeds would get a striker with devastating pace who can play through the middle or on either flank. He's been described by Ryan Giggs as a natural goalscorer. They type of forward that Leeds currently lack.

Manchester United would see Wilson develop at a club where he would experience a level of pressure that would act as good experience for him. Leeds are the Manchester United of the Championship. The biggest club in the division, who everyone wants to beat.

So what do both sets of fans think? Watch Wilson below and make your mind up.
