Steve Morison was brought in as part of the deal that saw Leeds United legend Luciano Becchio move to Carrow Road, but the striker could only manage three goals in his brief stint at the club.

Despite Neil Warnock dubbing Morison a future Leeds legend, he failed to live up to the hype and has now re-joined the club where he enjoyed two fantastic seasons.

The 29 year old is understood to be surplus to requirements under Leeds boss Brian McDermott and a move for Morison will allow McDermott to bring in his own players.

McDermott told the official site"I am looking to re-shape my squad for the new season and there was an offer on the table for Steve to go to a club that he has already played at it.

"He's there for a year and he will be playing games, and due to the terms of the deal he can't play against us."

McDermott admitted on the first day of pre season training that he is ready to wheel and deal in the transfer market this summer after revealing he will have to let players go if he is to bring any in.

With Morison leaving, the money saved from wages will more than likely fund the move for former Reading striker Noel Hunt. Hunt is believed to be a target for the Leeds manager after the pair worked together during McDermott’s spell at Reading.
