Will Cellino and Leeds now regret snubbing this prolific striker after summer bid?

Leeds United Crest

This summer, Massimo Cellino picked out Kieran Agard as a player he wanted to sign for Leeds United - only to cancel the deal.

It has come as little surprise to see that the Massimo Cellino era at Leeds United has already been dramatic. Already under the Italian's ownership, we have seen star player Ross McCormack sold for £11m, a boat load of players coming over from Italy and a sacking, as his first appointment David Hockaday lasted just 70 days in charge before losing his job.

In his place is Slovenian Darko Milanic, who arrived from Sturm Graz last month, but he's still waiting for his first win as Leeds boss as he prepares to face Rotherham United on Friday night. The Millers may be without ex-Leeds striker Luciano Becchio, but do still have Fraser Richardson, Paul Green and Ryan Hall at their disposal - all of whom played for Leeds. Few players have moved a direct move between the two clubs recently, but one almost did this summer.

Forward Kieran Agard started his career with Arsenal and Everton before joining Yeovil Town and eventually Rotherham, and it was at the New York Stadium where he enjoyed his best spell, scoring 26 goals last season to take the Millers to the Championship - and it was in their play-off semi-final second leg against Preston where Cellino watched on as Agard scored the clinching third goal, and with just one year left on his contract, Leeds made their move.

The Whites agreed a deal worth up to almost £1m for Agard, only for the deal to collapse in mid-August. Agard's agent said that his wage demands weren't met, though Cellino said it was down to the 25-year-old's "bad attitude".

Since then, Agard strangely moved back down to League One with Bristol City, and has bagged five goals in eight games for the Robins to once again show his goalscoring ability.

Leeds fans have often said that the team lacks pace, and that's certainly what Agard offers. With just one goal scored under Milanic, maybe Cellino is starting to regret his decision to cancel a move to sign Agard.
