Robert Snodgrass favourites Sign for Leeds tweet, as he prepares for Hull comeback

Hull City KC Stadium

Leeds fans still admire Hull City winger Robert Snodgrass, and the feeling is mutual.

Robert Snodgrass is set to feature for Hull City's under-21 side this evening, his first game in more than a year.

The winger was signed by Hull in June 2014 for a fee the BBC reported to be £6 million, only to suffer a serious knee injury on his debut.

The Scotsman took to Twitter on Sunday updating fans he was set for his first game, after a difficult battle back to fitness.

The 28-year-old remains highly regarded by fans of former club Leeds United, where he spent the longest spell of his career, playing more than 190 games for the club, netting 41 goals in total.

Snodgrass received plenty of good luck messages from supporters, and used Twitter to favourite them, including one urging him to sign for Leeds.

There is no serious suggestion that is on the cards any time soon, but he evidently still holds an affection for the club he played for successfully between 2008 and 2012.

He appears determined to make the most of his second chance at Hull, who are flying high at the top of the Championship, with their eye on promotion.

If all goes according to plan, he could get a chance to play in the Premier League once again with the Tigers next season, having been denied the opportunity to do so in 2014/15.

Should he fail to get back into the Hull side, and his contract expires in June 2017, he can at least take heart from the fact he may be welcomed back at Leeds.
