Leeds United and Fulham battling it out over experienced winger

Published

on

Leeds United could tempt Kewell into an Elland Road returnLeeds United are preparing to make a sensational swoop for former star and now free agent Harry Kewell.

It is understood that Fulham are also very interested in Kewell, often regarded as ‘Australia’s finest football export’, but may offer him a ‘pay as you play’ deal due to his susceptibility to injuries.

Kewell, now 32, could be interested in a move back to the Premier League if Fulham boss Martin Jol is prepared to make an offer for him.

However former club Leeds, where Kewell won the PFA Young Player of the Year award, will attempt to hijack Fulham’s move for the Australian and tempt him back to Elland Road.

Kewell has been the subject of a lot of transfer speculation already this summer with Premier League new boys QPR, and Australian A-League clubs Melbourne Heart, Sydney FC and Newcastle Jets all interested in Kewell’s signature.

However it looks like Fulham and Leeds are the two clubs who are most likely to sign Kewell, but he will have to make the choice between playing in the top flight of English football or returning to a club where he was once a fan favourite.

    Don’t think he would be stupid enough to come back to Yorkshire (or maybe he is, hehe very unlikely event this happened. couldn’t understand the uproar after his move to turkey amongst the fans who used to worship him, so he probably wouldn’t see an issue), i wouldn’ expect a warm welcome in the very unlikely event of this happening.

    You get paid to write this!!
    Nobody at the club would even utter his name, let alone consider bringing him back.
    As a Leeds fan in Australia, I can tell you that the only reason he’s not coming to Australia to see out his days is due to his ridiculous wage demands that keep getting watered down but are just insane – if ever an agent hijacked a career, Mandic did it to Kewell. The way he left Leeds to Scousers, the fee demanded, and then to the only team we hate more than Scum (they have never murdered 2 of our fans), and claimed at the time to ‘ hope it brings the two clubs together’ – I can’t believe I’ve wasted 2 minutes of my life on typing this… MOT
