Aston Villa defender Eric Lichaj has revealed he could be tempted by the chance to rejoin Leeds United next season.
The American has recently completed a loan spell at Elland Road and made 16 appearances in the Championship for Simon Grayson's side.
He has enjoyed the chance to play regular first-team football after featuring just eight times for Villa following previous loan spells at Lincoln City and Leyton Orient.
The 22-year-old feels Leeds can challenge for promotion next season and is not ruling out the possibility of playing for the Whites again.
"If the right circumstances came around, I'd be glad to come back here," Lichaj told the Yorkshire Evening Post. "Everyone has been great, the players, the coaching staff and fans.
"Playing the amount of games has probably been the best thing. It's the longest stretch in my career and it's good to get that under my belt. More people have probably seen me now.
"Leeds have some very good players in the squad and good team intelligence and I wouldn't be surprised if they are around the promotion area next year."
