Photo: 100-goal Leeds United pair Jermaine Beckford and Luciano Becchio, now free agents

Lucciano Becchio

The two will leave Bolton Wanderers and Norwich City respectively this summer.

The picture above is certainly one that Leeds United fans got used to seeing in the 2008-09 and 2009-10 season.

Jermain Beckford and Luciano Becchio celebrating banging in a respective goal for the club in League One.

The pair were two of the most feared strikers in the Football League, with good reason.

In the two years they played with each other, after Becchio had arrived from Merida, they scored a combined tally of 100 goals in a total of 197 appearances for Leeds - a quite incredible statistic.

Beckford then left for Everton whilst Becchio stayed until a 2013 move to Norwich City.

Now the pair are free agents.

Beckford's deal at Bolton Wanderers has come to an end while Becchio was recently released by Norwich after a torrid time in Norfolk.

Beckford has recently found form on loan at Preston North End, firing them to Championship football via the play-offs recently.

Both are available and have been linked with Leeds, although it looks fairly likely that neither will return.

Rightly so. Leeds United must move forward and other, younger, options are out there on the market.

Time for the 100-goal duo rumours to be put to rest.
