The 22-year-old midfielder completed the 2023-24 season on loan at League One side Northampton Town, where he notably contributed with five goals and six assists. His performance at this level appeals strongly to Wrexham as they gear up for competition in the third tier.

However, Leonard’s standout performances haven’t gone unnoticed by Championship teams, earning him accolades such as Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Season during his stint at Northampton. According to TEAMtalk, Hull City, Preston North End, and Plymouth Argyle are among the clubs showing interest in the former Scotland Under-21 international.

Scheduled to return to Brighton for pre-season training this summer, Leonard initially joined the club in 2018. Despite making only two senior appearances for Brighton, he enjoyed productive loan spells at Northampton.

As he approaches the final year of his contract at the Amex Stadium, speculation suggests a potential deal in the upcoming weeks. It’s reported that clubs like Wrexham and Plymouth, the latter now under the management of Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney, may need to offer around £300,000 to secure Leonard’s services.
