As Wigan sign a new 'keeper, should Uwe Rosler bring his former number one back to Leeds United?

Scott Carson is looking likely to leave the DW Stadium after the signing of Richard O'Donnell.

Leeds United have a new head coach, after former Wigan Athletic man Uwe Rosler took over from Neil Redfearn on Wednesday.

The German has been promised a degree of control over transfers at the club, something which has previously, it seems, been in the hands of Massimo Cellino and Nicola Salerno.

Events today may have given him the chance to bring a former Leeds player back from his former club Wigan Athletic.

The Lactics proudly announced earlier today that they will be signing Richard O'Donnell from Walsall when his contract expires next month.

With that in mind Scott Carson's future at the club certainly looks in doubt.

Carson, who has four caps for England, is still only 29-years-old and would offer plenty to an interested party. He is also, of course, a former Leeds United player. Carson joined the club in 2002 and went on to become a promising prospect at the club.

After just three appearances for the club he was snapped up by Liverpool in 2004.

Under Rosler Carson was a first-team regular at the DW Stadium, after recovering from a thigh strain. Leeds currently have Marco Silvestri as their number one, but have no back-up - with Stuart Taylor and Alex Cairns both leaving the club.

Carson would provide excellent competition for the young Italian and Rosler must surely be considering his former number one's return to Elland Road.
