Kyle Lafferty again linked with Leeds United, comments on his desire to play

Kyle Lafferty

The Northern Ireland international is desperate for first-team football.

The future of Kyle Lafferty has been a topic of much discussion in recent months.

He showed great form in Northern Ireland's successful Euro 2016 qualifying campaign but he has not been given a sniff of a chance at making a Norwich City breakthrough anytime soon.

Leeds United have been heavily linked with a move for the player. At one point the popular consensus was it was going to be done. However, no deal ever surfaced, with Leeds keen on ensuring they had an option to keep him on beyond the end of the season.

Today The Sun are reporting that Leeds remain keen.

They state:

Kyle Lafferty is praying he can be rescued from his Norwich nightmare ahead of Euro 2016.

Leeds are keen on the Northern Ireland ace, with the loan window closing next week.

They go on to carry a short quote from the striker himself, who comments:

"I just want to play.”

The emergency loan window is coming to an end and Leeds United may be looking to bring in one or two fresh faces to help them continue their good recent form.

Lafferty, who told Belfast Live this week of his regret at leaving and desire to return to Rangers, will be desperate for action to ensure he is in the best shape for the Euros in the summer.

This report suggests that Leeds have not yet given up on bringing the Norwich player to Elland Road.
