Luciano Becchio still clinging to Leeds United dream?

Luciano Becchio remains a fan favourite at Leeds, will he get a second chance?

Argentine striker Luciano Becchio continues to court the attention of Leeds United fans.

The forward is a free agent, currently doing rehab on an ankle injury, and is still just 31-years-old.

Suggestion of a return to his former club began when the Whites appointed Steve Evans as boss, a head coach who signed him on loan at Rotherham United last season.

Becchio has been dropping hints on Twitter for weeks now about the club, and did so once again on Thursday, showing he still has plenty of affection for the Whites.

It is hard to think he would turn down an invitation from Leeds to sign for the club, or even one to train alongside the first team.

That may be a sensible route for Leeds to go down if they have any interest in him, but for now there has been no indication the club are ready to bite on him.

Head coach Steve Evans this week told BBC Radio Leeds that an option to bring in Norwich City forward Kyle Lafferty on loan is one they are exploring, and this appears to be a priority for the time being.

Leeds haven't entirely forgotten about Becchio. Ahead of the club's trip to Wycombe Wanderers this evening for a friendly, the club posted a video on their Twitter feed of the impressive goal the Argentine scored when the two sides last faced off.
