The 23-year-old has been in sparkling form for the Whites this season, bringing him to the attention of Premier League sides.

He only completed a permanent switch to Elland Road 12 months ago, having shone during a loan switch from Leicester

Gradel penned a two-and-a-half-year contract upon his arrival, which is set to run until the summer of 2012.

Spotlight

His fine form has thrust him into the spotlight, though, and the top flight vultures are beginning to circle.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson maintains that Gradel is not for sale, but the Whites have yet to see their resistance tested.

Newcastle could be the first to test the water, with Alan Pardew believed to be keen on a New Year approach.

Gradel has admitted that he would welcome the opportunity to test himself in the Premier League at some stage, but has given no indication that he is looking to make such a step up this season.
