The Argentine is currently not in the picture at Norwich City.
Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn has faced the media today ahead of the weekend meeting with Bolton Wanderers in the Championship.
But of course, while he was wanting to talk about the game, it is January and Leeds have four loan positions they can fill despite their current transfer embargo.
This week they have been linked with plenty of names but the idea of Luciano Becchio returning to the club is perhaps most exciting. The Argentine played for Leeds from 2008 until 2013, when he made a controversial switch to Norwich City.
It was a deal that failed and most recently Becchio played on loan for Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United.
Now he has admitted he would like a return to Leeds, where he scored 87 goals in 221 appearances.
Redfearn has also confirmed that Leeds would love to have him back:
Redfearn says he is interested in signing Luciano Becchio: "He would be one that would give us good competition. He knows Leeds." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) January 8, 2015
Redfearn: "The ideal scenario is that we get two or three signings in to freshen things up a bit." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) January 8, 2015
He went on to discuss the upcoming game, insisting that the much improved Bolton Wanderers under Neil Lennon will cause Leeds problems this weekend. However, he believes the recent performance against Sunderland should give the fans hope of securing a result:
Redfearn says the performance vs Sunderland was "encouraging" - "We looked more solid & stable. There were good signs." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) January 8, 2015
Redfearn: "We've shown that we're capable but we just lack something that makes us consistent week-in, week-out. The desire is there." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) January 8, 2015
Redfearn says Bolton are a "different animal" compared to last time: "If we keep things tight & take chances, we can get a result." #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) January 8, 2015
