Leeds United take on Fleetwood Town in the EFL Cup this evening, in a game that will see Leeds face a former manager in Uwe Rosler.

But the German gaffer will not be the only one facing off against old faces tonight, as Leeds United left-back Charlie Taylor once spent a very successful loan spell with the Cod Army.

Leeds defender Taylor headed to Highbury in October 2013 on an initial one-month loan.

His loan was then extended by a month before finally becoming a season-long deal in December 2013.

He went on to have a huge impact for the then League Two club.

He played 42 times for Fleetwood that season, including in the League Two play-off semi-finals and final – which saw the club promoted to League One.

His form out on loan even earned him a new contract at Leeds in the summer of 2014 – a contract that expires at the end of the current campaign.

Taylor goes into the game against his old loan club amid a storm at Leeds. He recently handed in a transfer request at Elland Road.
