Some Liverpool fans on Twitter believe that James Milner could still sign for Leeds United next summer.

The 33-year-old has signed a two-year contract extension at Anfield to commit himself until the year 2022.

Milner's future was a subject of speculation in recent months, and the man himself, who began his career at Leeds, has repeatedly suggested that he'd be open to a return to Elland Road.

With an 11-point cushion in the automatic promotion places, the Whites have a huge advantage if they are to finally book their long-awaited Premier League return come May.

 

And some Liverpool supporters believe that Milner could still end up at Leeds if they win promotion, despite his new deal.

Here's their reaction to the announcement:

Is Milner to Leeds still a go? Sort of, but they have to win promotion.

The West Yorkshire side will be due a huge windfall if they end their 16-year exile from the top flight and only that sort of money would allow them to re-sign Milner, whose last deal was worth £140,000 per week [Spotrac].

So much hinges on promotion for Leeds this season, but if they do go up then Milner would be a mere bonus. The chance to re-establish themselves among England's elite is the real prize.
