Luciano Becchio favourites Leeds United return message

Luciano Becchio continues to flirt with a Leeds United return.

Former Leeds United striker Luciano Becchio remains keen on a return to the club.

The Argentine is a free agent after leaving homeland club Belgrano a month ago, and is working to reach full fitness in the hope of winning a new deal.

The question of whether that will be at Leeds United, has been raised since the appointment of Steve Evans, a manager who signed him on loan for Rotherham United a year ago.

Becchio has been active on Twitter of late, even posting a photo of himself in a gym this morning wearing an old Leeds United kit.

The striker has added to this, acknowledging a message from a supporters asking if he would like to come back to the club, by favouriting the message.

Becchio Return

The 31-year-old has not played regularly for two seasons due to injuries and being unable to get into the Norwich side, but is clearly still motivated to salvage his career.

Having earned cult hero status at Leeds, where he netted more than 80 goals, he clearly feels he has unfinished business and wants a return.

Head coach Steve Evans appeared to quash rumours earlier in the week, telling the Yorkshire Evening Post no deal was in place, or even close, for Becchio - yet the striker appears determined to drive them, and to that end it is refreshing to see a player desperate to play for a club, and just perhaps, there could still be a deal to be done.
