7 goals in 16 games - Should Leeds United have kept hold of Brian Montenegro?

The Paraguayan has been in good form since his loan deal came to an end at Elland Road.

This summer plenty of Massimo Cellino's arrivals left Leeds United. The Elland Road outfit saw the likes of disappointing signings such as Zan Bendicic, Adryan, Dario Del Fabro, Granddi Ngoyi and Edgar Cani all leave the club and not many of them have gone on to impress since.

However one of Cellino's deals that left in the summer has had a good start to his current campaign.

Leeds snapped up Brian Montengro from Club Nacional on a season-long loan seal last September.

He had previously had a spell at West Ham United earlier in his career before going on a journeyman spell throughout his native Paraguay with Tacuary, Rubio Nu and Libertad.

He joined Nacional in 2014 but soon headed out to Leeds.

But the young forward played just six times for Leeds during his stint at Elland Road and failed to score a single goal - spending the bulk of his time with the Under-21s.

Since leaving however he has been producing some of the best form of his career with Nacional.

He has scored seven goals in the 16 games he has played in Paraguayan top flight since joining back up with the club in July.

He is just 22-years-old and clearly has something about him to have attracted two of England's top clubs to sign him in recent years.

Of all the Cellino signings that Leeds let go, perhaps Montenegro is the only one they might have considered keeping.
