LEEDS are set to make a shock bid for Hull goal-machine Jarrod Bowen.
The Championship high-flyers are willing to pay a £3million loan fee for wide man Bowen.
And that figure could rise to a stunning £15m if they are promoted.
The offer will give Hull a dilemma as it almost matches their asking price if their rivals make it to the Premier League.
The Tigers want around £20m for Bowen but there have been no takers at the price.
His contract runs out in the summer but they can exercise a clause to keep him for a further year.
Bowen is also fancied by Newcastle but Steve Bruce has yet to commit to a bid. Other Premier League clubs have looked closely without offering cash.
