This isn’t an entirely new piece of news, I’m not even sure you could classify it as news as it’s more fan led speculation in reality, but there’s certainly a groundswell amongst the Elland Road faithful that a return for James Milner could be on the cards should Leeds United manage to gain promotion to the Premier League this year.

It bases itself mainly on the fact that our Academy graduate from all those years ago is yet to sign a new deal at current club Liverpool and come the summer the 32-year-old will be out of contract and available as a free agent.

Fans talking about Milner on social media has been a regular occurrence over the summer and once unsubstantiated claims (at least based on my searches) of him reportedly being more than open to a return if Premier League football was on the cards broke, some sections of Twitter went into a meltdown over the possibility.

Given the career he’s had, his engine showing no signs of shutting down – it would be a nice way to square that circle as he was taken from us way too early when he got the move to Newcastle, so it would definitely be a good way for him to bring the curtain down on his career and dare I say, looking further forward, a role with the Academy itself given his attitude and approach to football could be a match made in heaven.
