Hibernian defender Rob Jones' agent claims the defender is unhappy about being denied permission to discuss a possible move to Leeds.
Jones' agent Kevin Smith, claims the big defender is a target for Leeds boss Dennis Wise as he looks to bolster his squad at Elland Road.
The 27-year-old is believed to be keen on a move back to England, but Smith insists Hibs have denied the player the chance to talk to Leeds.
Jones has rejected the offer of a new deal at Easter Road and is unhappy the club have blocked him from talking to Leeds.
Talks"I know Rob has spoken with the chairman [Rod Petrie] and expressed a desire to go back to England to play his football," Smith told The Sun.
"There have been a number of meetings and I believe Rob has made his feelings clear to the club on his position.
"Now I am aware Leeds have shown an interest in Rob - and that would be something he'd be interested in. But Hibs have made it clear that he is not for sale and there is a lot of bad feeling and disappointment on our side."
