Norwich striker Luciano Becchio is desperate to return to old club Leeds United according to claims by his agent.

The Yorkshire Evening Post discovered that the 31-year old wants to return his old club after failing to make an impact at Norwich.

The Argentinian has made just 13 appearances for City since joining in 2013.

Rotherham loan

Becchio had been sent out to fellow Championship side Rotherham on a half-season loan but this was cut short when he suffered a heel injury in October.

Rotherham are shown interest in re-signing Becchio now he is back fit as he showed promise in his five games for the millers scoring two goals.

Becchio's Leeds return looks likely as United coach Neil Redfearn identified the striker as a January target.

The Argentinian had scored 75 goals in 190 appearances for the Whites before leaving for the then, Premier League, Norwich City.

Norwich are likely to listen to offers for Becchio making an Elland Road return even more probable.

In the words of Becchio's agent: "If they want to sign him they know where we are.”

Managerial situation

With the resignation of Neil Adams coming a couple of days ago at Carrow Road however things may hit a turning point.

Nothing is confirmed yet but the favourite to take over the reigns at City is Hamilton manager Alex Neil.

The Scot is fairly new to the managerial side of the game but has had a promising start at the now Scottish Premiership side.

He helped the side gain promotion to the Scottish game's top division before taking his side to third in the SPL, just three points behind Celtic.

Should Alex Neil, or any other manager want to give Becchio a chance to be part of their plans then the situation may change.

But right now it looks as if Becchio could making a return to the club he left just two years ago.
