(Image) Nostalgia strikes for Leeds United fans as Luke Ayling reunites with Kyle Barltey

Leeds United defender Luke Ayling was spotted enjoying some time out with former teammate Kyle Bartley and it’s bringing back memories of 2016-17 for the club’s fans, when the centre-back enjoyed a superb loan spell at Elland Road.

During that season, Bartley impressed with his leadership and organization skills as Leeds came close to qualifying for the playoffs before tapering away near the end of the season.

The 27-year-old’s rock-solid presence was also credited to have brought out the best in Ayling and Pontuss Jansson as the White’ formed one of the most stingiest defensive partnership in the Championship.

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and Bartley went back to play for Swansea before signing up a permanent deal with West Bromwich Albion at the start of this season, squashing rumors that he was set for a return to Elland Road.

Always good to reminisce about the good old days though. Check out the picture that’s making Leeds fans nostalgic:
