Brentford have reportedly joined the race to sign Southampton full-back Sam McQueen.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old is attracting attention from Leeds and Reading, with the left-back being lined up for a loan move for the remainder of the season.

McQueen is currently a fringe player on the south coast, sitting behind Ryan Bertrand and Matt Targett in the pecking order.
