Kyle Lafferty retweet on Elland Road - Leeds United deal possible?

Kyle Lafferty

Leeds United continue to be linked with a move for the Northern Irishman.

It is a rumour that simply continues to rumble on, and the man himself is not helping to diffuse the situation.

Of course the man in question is Kyle Lafferty and the rumour is that he is on his way to Leeds United in January.

He has not helped to settle the rumours by retweeting this tweet from a Derbyshire Leeds fan on the social networking site.

Of course he might very well have been simply agreeing with the fan regarding his fiancee Vanessa Chung.

But the rumours regarding Lafferty and Leeds are not going anywhere fast.

He is best mates with Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas when it comes to international duty and it is well known that both Massimo Cellino and Steve Evans are fans of the player - who cannot currently buy a game at Premier League club Norwich City.

The Canaries striker has been in fantastic form for Northern Ireland, helping them make the European Championships in France next summer with seven goals in nine qualifying matches and would add some great depth to the Leeds squad - as they try to build on some recent good results.
