James Milner has 'not ruled out' Leeds United move after source's reveal - Agbonlahor
Gabby Agbonlahor has claimed James Milner won’t have “ruled out” a move to Leeds United.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Aston Villa striker suggested Milner might return to Elland Road after spending a season at Brighton.
According to the Daily Mail (16 May), the Whites are keen on signing the 37-year-old if they stay in the Premier League next season.
Leeds need to win their final game of the season to have any hope of staying in the top flight next season and even then the chances are slim.
Last week (19 May), Football Insider revealed that Brighton have a full agreement to sign the midfielder when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Agbonlahor suggested Milner could still be contemplating a move to Yorkshire before the end of his playing career.

“I think Milner to Brighton just makes sense,” he told Football Insider.
“They have got so many new players coming in and out, they could lose [Moises] Caicedo and [Alexis] Mac Allister, Milner can come in and do a similar job to [Adam] Lallana. An experienced player who can come in when needed as back up.
“Knowing James Milner maybe Leeds will be the move afterwards. He started there maybe he wants to finish there. So I am sure he will not rule that out afterwards.
“But at the moment Brighton are in Europe next season and Milner’s experience in Europe is gong to help them.“
