Report: Leeds could rekindle interest in Kyle Lafferty after Rosler's exit

Kyle Lafferty

Leeds United could reconsider a move for Kyle Lafferty, according to reports.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Leeds United could rekindle their interest in signing Norwich City striker Kyle Lafferty as they search for more firepower.

The Whites brought in two strikers over the summer in Chris Wood and Lee Erwin, but the latter has been loaned out to League One side Bury for first-team experience.

Souleymane Doukara remains on the fringes of the side, and whilst Mirco Antenucci scored against Bolton on Saturday, new manager Steve Evans will be looking more more options in the final third.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported over the weekend that Leeds owner Massimo Cellino had wanted to secure a deal for Norwich City striker Lafferty, but former manager Uwe Rosler wasn't interested.

Now, they report that Leeds could rekindle their interest in the Northern Irish star with Evans at the helm, given how the Scot wants to boost his squad in the loan window.

Lafferty, 28, is out of favour at Carrow Road, despite his remarkable goalscoring feats for the Northern Ireland national team in their qualification for next summer's European Championships.

Lafferty, formerly of Burnley and Rangers, scored seven goals to fire Northern Ireland to France in 2016, and if he can replicate those sensational international exploits in front of goal at club level, he would certainly be a smart signing for Leeds.
