Leeds United fans split over mooted Beckford return

Leeds United fans have given differing opinions over a suggested return to Elland Road for Jermaine Beckford.

The 33-year-old striker spent four years playing for the Whites between 2006 and 2010.

Since then, Beckford has donned the colours of Everton, Leicester City, Bolton Wanderers and more recently Preston North End, where he played for the past two years.

On Monday, the Lilywhites confirmed that Beckford will not be offered a new contract, meaning that he will be a free agent this summer.

After hearing the news, some fans suggested that Leeds should try to bring him back to the club.

Others, though, were not convinced that he is the type of striker they need to help launch a serious bid for Premier League promotion next season.

Garry Monk’s side seemed destined for the playoffs a matter of months ago, but they ended up slipping out of the top six, losing their spot to Fulham.
