It is 12 years since Jermaine Pennant last stepped out at Elland Road in a Leeds shirt, yet he very much retains an affection for the club.

Pennant was on loan at Leeds for the 2003/04 season when he was just a youngster in search of regular game time, with his path blocked at Arsenal.

The former England under-21 international's time at Leeds ended badly with the team suffering relegation, but his efforts in a difficult season were largely appreciated.

Over the weekend Pennant spent some time chatting to fans on Twitter, and was quizzed about his time at Leeds, to simply reply saying he 'loved it'.

He added a further message...

Pennant is now 33 and plays his club football in Singapore with Tampine Rovers. His last spell in English football came with Wigan Athletic in the Championship in the 2014/15 season.

His career had a number of up's and down's, even featuring in the Champions League final for Liverpool against AC Milan in 2007.

Yet it appears his time at Leeds was one of the spells he really enjoyed, and would be happy to see the club be successful once again.
