Liverpool midfielder James Milner has revealed that it would be “very exciting” to return to Leeds United before he retires.
Milner was sold to Newcastle United by Leeds back in 2004.
Speaking about returning to Leeds, Milner said in his new book: “I get asked this all the time. Ask a Footballer: My Guide to Kicking a Ball About’.
“Any time I bump into a Leeds fan – or even my mates back home – it’s always, ‘When are you coming back? When are you coming home?’
“There would be so many things to weigh up – not just for myself or my family, but for Leeds,” Milner continued.
“If I was being released by another club, would they want me? It would be pointless for them and for me if I wasn’t needed at the time and it was just some kind of nostalgia trip.
“You can probably tell from what I’m saying that I love the club, but I also love playing for Liverpool and I want to play at the highest level for as long as I can.
“If my time at Liverpool came to an end and I was going to go somewhere else and Leeds were one of the clubs that were interested in me, then that would be a very exciting option for all the reasons I mention.”
Milner, whose contract at Liverpool runs until the summer of 2020, has made 14 appearances so far during this season with having scored 3 goals and provided 3 assists.
