Leeds United cult figure Tresor Kandol reappears after three years at sixth-tier Bishop's Stortford

Leeds United East Stand

The DR Congo international is back on the footballing radar.

Leeds United fans will likely remember striker Tresor Kandol.

The DR Congo striker was signed by Leeds in 2006, initially on loan, after a goalscoring stint at Barnet. It was during his three years at Elland Road that he played his one and only game for the DR Congo international team.

His time at Leeds was certainly eye-catching. He scored his fair share of goals but also made the headlines on numerous occasions for his violent actions on the pitch. If anything he ended up being something of a cult hero and his name is still chanted now and again in Leeds pubs after a drink too many.

In the end he was let go and went on to join Spanish side Albacete, making little impact. He next popped up at Hampton and Richmond in 2012 but since then he has been off the radar.

Today it has been revealed that he has found his latest destination. The former Leeds striker has joined Bishop's Stortford of the National League South - the sixth tier of English football - as confirmed on their official website.

Kandol has joined the club seemingly out of nowhere to replace the outgoing loanee Charlie Sheringham, son of England international Teddy.

Where he has been for the past three years? Not sure, but it seems he tried his hand at acting in this TV commercial back in 2013:

Hopefully Kandol can fire in the goals now he is back on the footballing radar, albeit down the pyramid at 34-years-old.
