Steven Gerrard has been linked with a return to the Premier League just a few months after leaving Aston Villa.

The Mirror report that the former Rangers boss is under consideration for the Leeds United role.

The report states that Gary McAllister, who won the title with the Yorkshire side, would make an emotional return to Elland Road.

McAllister was part of Howard Wilkinson’s 1992 winning side and his appointment as Gerrard’s number two would likely please the passionate Elland Road faithful.

Gerrard and McAllister helped Rangers win their first league title in ten years back in 2021, but their time at Villa Park ended last October as Villa struggled to find wins.

It has been nearly a week since Jesse Marsch was sacked by Leeds United.

The report states three other candidates for the Leeds United job rejected the opportunity to take the role at Leeds. They were West Brom’s Carlos Corberan, Rayo Vallecano’s Andoni Iraola, and Feyenoord’s Arne Slot.
