Leeds are in a battle with Premier League duo Newcastle and Brighton alongside Norwich for West Ham attacker Robert Snodgrass, according to a report.
Football.London have detailed on their site that the English quartet are all in the race to sign the 29-year-old right-winger, whose future in east London is said to be “in serious doubt.”
It is said that the Scotsman has failed to settle at the London Stadium since making a £10million move across from Hull just last January.
Now, the Hammers are reportedly ready to cut their losses on Snodgrass and former club Leeds are ready to bring the 24-time capped Scotland international back to Elland Road.
Snodgrass had previously spent four years at Leeds between 2008 and 2012 after joining from Scottish club Livingston.
He quickly became a fan favourite with his attacking talents and after helping them win promotion to the Championship, alongside scoring 41 times in 187 matches, he departed for Norwich in the Premier League.
Leeds supporters would certainly be delighted by the return of Snodgrass, but they could be in for a tough battle for his signature.
Football Insider verdict:
Snodgrass would be a fantastic signing for Leeds and would certainly add to the feel-good factor already installed at the club this summer. However, while the club and fans would be delighted for his return it is also up to the player on whether he wants to drop down to the Championship from the Premier League. After signing for West Ham at a £10million price it is likely that he is on a high wage and at this stage of his career he may now be reluctant to take a severe drop in wages, even if it means returning to a club where he is adored.
