Report: Former club SK Brann want recently released Leeds United midfielder Rodolph Austin

Norway Flag

The Jamaican international is wanted in Norway, where he previously spent four years.

Leeds United let plenty of players go this summer. The likes of Stuart Taylor, Alex Cairns, Michael Tonge, Zac Thompson, Aidy White and Rudolph Austin were all allowed to leave when their contracts expired at the end of the season.

The latter was perhaps the most surprising departee. Austin is a Championship regular with plenty of experience in the English game and previous boss Neil Redfearn would have wanted to keep him.

Uwe Rosler is now the boss at Leeds and there is no indication he will be returning, despite the Norwegian links between the pair.

Rosler was managing in Norway at the likes of Viking and Molde when Austin was playing in the Tippeligaen for SK Brann - who are reportedly one team interested in signing him.

The likes of Celtic and Blackburn Rovers have also been mentioned as keen, but Brann are reportedly keen on a return for the player - as reported by TV2.

Austin played for Brann for four years before moving to Leeds in 2012 and is still a fan favourite at the club.

When quizzed on a potential deal for Austin last week their sporting director Rune Soldvedt told Aftenposten:

"I have no comment on this information."

So he was non-committal. One thing that seems for sure is that Austin is not short of offers this summer.
