The 31-year-old is currently without a club
Former Manchester United winger Kieran Richardson is on the verge of joining their bitter rivals Leeds United.
Richardson, who has represented England at international level, is without a club following his release from Aston Villa.
Villa’s local rivals Birmingham City have reportedly failed in a contract offer for the bygone Red Devil.
Now Garry Monk’s Leeds are in the driving seat to sign Richardson, after fighting off competition from Bristol City.
