The former Sunderland manager is desperately seeking cheap options in the transfer market, including making loan enquiries for out-of-favour players, such as Lyon's Brazilian international Edmilson.
French sources have revealed that Reid made an approach for Zoumana Camara of Lens, but it proved fruitless.
Both defender Camara and Lens rejected the notion of a temporary switch to The Premiership.
The 24-year-old centre back made 14 appearances in Le Championnat last season, after previously having spells with the likes of Internazionale, Bastia and Marseille.
Leeds also remain on the trail of Paris Saint Germain's Didier Domi.
PSG coach Vahid Halilhodzic is willing to part with the former Newcastle United full back, and he would appear to be a realistic target for the Yorkshire outfit.
Lens midfielder Antoine Sibierski has also attracted Reid's attention, but Manchester City appear to be leading the chase for his signature.
