Liverpool 34-year-old midfielder James Milner started out at Leeds United and has been backed to return to his former club this summer.
Milner signed a new two-year deal in December meaning he has contract with ‘The Reds’ until the summer of 2022, but reportedly player isn’t happy with his playing time and ready to secure a summer switch to his former club.
The former England international’s return to the Elland Road was very actual for last two years in the newspapers, but it seems the player wants to move to his boyhood club and help them to stay in the Permier League.
Asked about a potential return to Leeds United, Liverpool’s vice-captain said: “I’m a fan. I always follow the team and the results. So you can never say no or even yes because just so much changes in football, you never know what happens.
“It would be amazing to play for Leeds again but no one from the club has ever contacted me about that. People talk about my age and that I’m getting on, and could I continue after Liverpool, but I don’t think I’m typical physically for my age.”
According to reports, this is the year Milner will finally complete a move to his boyhood club on a free transfer deal.
The 34-year-old has still left a few years to play at the top level and will surely boost Leeds’ chances to at least stay in the top-flight next season.
Center midfielder, who can play as a left-back, as a winger or even as a striker is a huge boost for any club. After moving to Liverpool in 2015 Miler has made 209 appearances in all competitions and managed to score 26 goals and helped the club to win the Uefa Champions League last season.
