Leeds United make enquiry for Gary McAllister to return - report

Scotland Football

Could Gary McAllister be returning to Leeds United?

Leeds United's player and staff turnover has been huge over the last decade, but could one of the more popular faces be coming back? 

It appears that a former players and manager is being lined up for a return, Gary McAllister.

The Sun on Sunday reported an approach has already been made:

"Leeds want Gary McAllister to return in a behind-the-scenes role. Owner Massimo Cellino is keen on the Scot, 49, to be a public face at Elland Road and has made an inquiry."

It's unclear as to the exact role, or if this would be connected to the club's ongoing search for an assistant for head coach Neil Redfearn.

McAllister played for the club between 1990 and 1996, part of their league title winning team in 91/92. His managerial stint was more brief, appointed in early 2008 and sacked at the end of the year after a poor run of results.

The former midfielder is not currently working in football, his last role being caretaker manager at Aston Villa back in 2011.
