Leeds United are not in for Bournemouth midfielder Eunan O'Kane, despite reports they have had a bid rejected for the player.

It has been claimed that the Whites, along with fellow Championship side Wigan Athletic, have seen Bournemouth knock back bids for Irishman O'Kane.

Leeds have already made ten signings so far this summer, the latest being Liam Bridcutt and Pontus Jansson, signed earlier this week, but are still on the lookout for further additions.

However, talk of Leeds being after O'Kane are wide of the mark, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, even though the former Torquay United man was considered as an option earlier this summer.

It remains to be seen whether Wigan are in for O'Kane.


Bournemouth snapped up the midfielder from Torquay in 2012 and he helped the Cherries win promotion to the Premier League.

The midfielder, who was born in Northern Ireland, represented the country at youth level, but chose to play his senior international football for the Republic of Ireland.
