Santa Cruz emerges as shock target for Leeds

Leeds United have emerged as the surprise favourites to sign Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The Paraguayan has found it tough to fit in at Eastlands and with a number of players above the 30-year-old in the pecking order a move away seems more than likely.

Interest is understood to be high in Santa Cruz but his father and agent Aproniano told Paraguayan newspaper ABC a move to the Championship is not out of the question: "There are teams interested and if he had not had so many injuries there would be even more teams.

"The second division is very competitive in England, with powerful teams who were in the top division and have huge stadiums, like Leeds United, but the future will be decided by Manchester City."
