Leeds planning summer homecoming for former attacker

Promotion hopefuls Leeds are reportedly hoping to bring former star Aaron Lennon back to Elland Road in the summer.

A report in The Sun on Sunday claims that Marcelo Bielsa is making checks on Lennon ahead of a potential bid to bring the winger back to Leeds.

The Whites are well placed to secure a Premier League return, despite suffering a 3-1 home reverse to fellow Championship title challengers Norwich on Saturday night, with Bielsa’s side currently sitting second in the table.

The report goes on to state that the Argentine is already thinking about potential summer targets, with Lennon set to be offered the chance to return to Yorkshire.

The 31-year-old left Elland Road to move to Tottenham 14 years ago and is currently plying his trade at Burnley, where he has made 16 appearances under Sean Dyche this season.

The attacker could, however, be sidelined for the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury against former club Spurs at Wembley in mid-December – although that has not stopped Bielsa from preparing a potential bid.

A possible move for Lennon is somewhat of a surprise, given that Leeds are still said to be pursuing a summer move for Swansea winger Daniel James, after an expected switch dramatically fell through on Deadline Day.
