Paul Robinson says he 'would love' to return to Leeds United

Elland Road East Stand

A former Leeds United player is keen on a return to the club if possible.

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson has been speaking to Talk Sport about the prospect of returning to Elland Road.

The 35-year-old is out of contract at current club Blackburn Rovers this summer and as a result he will be available on a free transfer.

He featured only seven times for the Championship side this season but he could still be a worthy back-up ‘keeper if Leeds boss Uwe Rosler opted for a move.

“I’d love to go back to Leeds,” Robinson said in comments later published by the Lancashire Telegraph.

“I saw something in the papers the other week but I was not sure how true it was or where it came from. I’ve had nothing at the moment; there’s been no talk or contact.”

Leeds currently have Marco Silvestri on their books as the number one ‘keeper, but with Stuart Taylor and Alex Cairns both released this summer the club are likely to be on the look-out for reinforcements in that area.

Robinson made 108 appearances for Leeds along with 172 for Tottenham Hotspur and 201 for Blackburn and whatever the future holds, it appears he does not want to hang his boots up just yet.
