Leeds United are lining up a deal to bring former Leeds United defender Ian Harte back to the club according to reports on SkySports.com.
With Leeds back in the Championship, the lure of playing in a higher division and at one of his former clubs where he enjoyed so much personal success, might tempt him to rejoin the Elland Road club.
Harte has enjoyed a highly successful season at League One side Carlisle United, scoring 18 goals from defence and earning a place amongst the PFA League One team of the year.
The defender started his career at Elland Road and spent nine seasons with the club making 286 appearances and scoring 38 goals.
He was part of the side managed by David O`Leary who twice went close to European glory, before being knocked out at the semi final stages of both the UEFA Cup and Champions League.
He was best remembered for his trademark free kicks and scored a number crucial goals for the club.
Harte joined Spanish club Levante after the sides relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2003/04 season.
After three years in Spain he returned to England and had brief spells at Sunderland and Blackpool before signing for Carlisle.
The 32 year old who has won 64 appearances for the Republic of Ireland, still has one year to run on his current contract at Brunton Park.
