Ian Harte: Linked with a possible return to Leeds this summer

Harte is expected to leave Reading this summer when his contract at the Madejski Stadium expires.

The goalscoring defender has seen his first-team chances limited this season and new Reading boss Nigel Adkins is thought to be willing to let him move on

The news has alerted a host of clubs to his availability and Leeds are thought be exploring a move to re-sign the former Republic of Ireland international.

Full-back Harte came through the ranks to make his professional debut at Elland Road and went on to make nearly 300 appearances for the club between 1996 and 2004.

Leeds boss Brian McDermott is a big admirer of Harte having worked with him during his time in charge of Reading and he is believed to have made a new left-back one of his top priorities this summer.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
