Robbie Savage has revealed that he would like to see Leeds back in the Premier League next season.

The former Premier League midfielder has explained that he would love to see the Yorkshire club back in the top flight.

The Whites are currently fighting for promotion in the Championship and have emerged as contenders under Garry Monk this season.

Leeds are currently fifth-placed in the league table and are occupying a play-off spot, but the race for promotion is being hotly contested as always.

Savage has explained that he would like Leeds to return to the big time after their 12-year absence.

“I would love to see Leeds back in the Premier League,” Savage told BBC Radio 5 live.

Leeds have not played in the Premier League since their relegation in the 2003/04 season, when they were relegated alongside Wolves and Leicester with 33 points.

The Yorkshire club have a huge footballing history and their supporters are demanding a return to the top flight.

Leeds have dropped down into League One in recent seasons, but now look well equipped to secure promotion in the Championship.

Monk’s summer signings have certainly had a huge impact on the club and centre-back pairing Kyle Bartley and Pontus Jansson have helped steady the defence.

The Whites also have goal scorer Chris Wood on form this season and he has scored 14 goals in 25 appearances.

In other Leeds news, the club’s summer signing has been the biggest disappointment of 2016.
