Leeds striker Steve Morison targeted by old club Millwall

Leeds United East Stand

HITC Sport understands Leeds striker Steve Morison is being lined up for a return to former club Millwall.

HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club that Millwall are trying to bring former striker Steve Morison back to the club from Leeds United.

Leeds are thought to be open to offers for Morison as they look to bring in a new striker before the start of the season and the arrival of Chris Wood from Leicester has pushed Morison further down the pecking order at Elland Road.

Morison joined Leeds in January 2013 as part of a swap deal that saw Luciano Becchio move to Norwich City and he scored three goals in 16 appearances in the second half of that season.

The Wales international found himself out of favour at Leeds in the 2013/14 campaign and rejoined Millwall on a season-long loan two years after leaving the club for Norwich.

During that loan stint Morison scored five goals in 20 appearances for Millwall, but he returned to Leeds following the end of the loan deal.

Morison made 26 appearances for Leeds last season and scored two goals and the Yorkshire club are ready to let him move on as he is unlikely to figure in Uwe Rosler's long-term plans.

Millwall have expressed an interest in bringing Morison back to the Den on a permanent basis and are trying to raise funds to agree the deal.
