Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson has been linked with a return to Leeds United.

According to the Daily Mirror, Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Paul Robinson could make a return to Leeds United this summer.

Robinson, 35, has played just seven times for Rovers this season, and hasn't featured under Gary Bowyer since the middle of September.

With his contract at Ewood Park now set to expire, the former England international will become a free agent, and may be looking to make one final move before his retirement.

The Mirror now believe that Robinson could make a stunning return to Leeds, the club he joined from York City at the age of 17 back in 1996.

Robinson made over 100 Premier League appearances for Leeds, emerging as one of the best young English goalkeeper of his generation before making the move to Tottenham upon Leeds' relegation to the second tier in 2004.

After four years at White Hart Lane, Robinson made the move back up North to Blackburn, and whilst he has over 200 appearances for the club, his time at Ewood Park is now coming to an end.

A move to Leeds may be considered as something of a surprise considering that Neil Redfearn's men already have Marco Silvestri at their disposal, but with Stuart Taylor set to become a free agent this summer, Leeds may want another experienced goalkeeper to sit behind Silvestri next term.

Robinson may want a final shot at first team football, but if he was to be offered a return to Elland Road, it may be too good to turn down - and fans would surely welcome him back too.
