Former Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford’s attachment for Leeds United has been well documented with the striker reiterating his love for the club on several occasions.
The striker still remains a popular figure at Leeds United having spent four very productive seasons in the Leeds shirt.
After a poor season marred with disciplinary problems and injuries, the London born striker was one of the three players to be recently released by Preston North End. The development hasn’t gone unnoticed on part of the Leeds fans who are still keen to see the striker make a return to the club despite Beckford being past his best.
Beckford on his part has also hinted on a desire for a Leeds reunion as the striker recently announced that he was coming back to Leeds albeit in a boxing match. Beckford announced that he was joining Leeds fighter Josh Warrington in his ring walk in the match against Kiko Martinez.
