Leeds United fans are desperate to see former Whites star James Milner return to Elland Road.

The veteran instead looks set to stay, at least for another year until the end of his contract. He has had a new lease of life under Jurgen Klopp, featuring in a defensive role.

 

Milner has excelled this season at full-back, backing up Andy Robertson at left-back at times.

Now Liverpool are reportedly looking to his former club Leeds for a new alternative.

The Sun report Leeds talent Leif Davis has emerged as a contender for the Reds, with the 19-year-old regarded as a future star.

Davis heading to Liverpool would potentially limit Milner's role if he does well.

Leeds could not expect Milner to leave the club this summer, but if he finds his opportunities more limited next season, with Davis a factor, the Whites might end up getting the player they want after all.
