Leeds United midfielder Tommaso Bianchi has been linked with a return to Italy.

Leeds United midfielder Tommaso Bianchi has been linked with a return to Italy to sign with Vicenza, report local outlet Vicenza Today.

Bianchi made 24 appearances for Leeds last season in midfield but his campaign was cut short by a knee injury.

The 26-year-old signed a three-year deal back in August, switching from Sassuolo.

He was linked with a move away from Leeds in January to former loan club Modena, reported the Yorkshire Evening Post at the time, but nothing came of it.

Vicenza finished third in Serie B last season, and last week it was reported they had lodged an enquiry with AC Milan over last season's injury struck Leeds loanee Zan Benedicic, per MilanNews.it.
