Leeds would do very well to bring back Aaron Lennon this summer

Leeds would do very well to bring back Aaron Lennon this summer

Leeds cannot afford to get ahead of themselves even if they could go top of the Championship by winning their game in hand.

With 14 games still to play, Leeds have far from completed their mission of a top-flight return as their league standing is still very much in the balance.

A number of teams have the potential to get promoted – with Leeds being one of them – so they have to maintain their focus and continue to work hard. Even though it will be hard to balance, the Whites almost must be thinking of who they will sign to improve in the summer, of which Burnley’s Aaron Lennon will come straight to mind.

Lennon, (who is valued at £4.5 million on Transfermarkt) started his footballing career with Leeds and could now be set to return to Elland Road (touted with a move in the Sun some weeks ago now), where it all began.

Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly a fan of the 31-year-old and is ready to stage an emotional return to his boyhood club.

It’s no wonder he is a fan either, with plenty of top-flight experience and then attributes like electric pace, close control and an eye for his team-mates, he could settle in nicely to the current set-up at Elland Road.

The former England international is currently injured and that will be a big blow to him personally, seeing as he was very important to Burnley’s set-up this season.

With 22 appearances, one goal and one assist to his name, Lennon was once again a key player for a side, something he had previously struggled with during spells at Everton and Tottenham.

Leeds would certainly make room for the winger they once adored, seeing as he would definitely make improvements to their overall squad as well.
