It has been almost seven months since Robert Snodgrass made the £10 million move from Hull City to West Ham United, and now he is apparently on the move again. Some reports have suggested that The Hammers are wanting to sell the Scottish international after failing to impress the fans and the team alike. The only problem with this, is that they will be looking to recoup as much of the £10 million as they can.

Bookmakers Betfair have given newcomers Brighton a 2/1 odd of signing the 29 year old, but Snodgrass could also be in line to return to Leeds United. Betfair have given Leeds a shocking 20/1 odd of resigning Robert.

Most of you know that Robert Snodgrass was formerly a Leeds player, playing four seasons with The Whites until he was sold to Premier League side Norwich City in 2012. Snodgrass joined Leeds United in 2008 after coming up through the ranks at Scottish club Livingston. He played a key part in the team that gained promotion to the Championship after the 2009-10 season. In all, Snodgrass appeared 193 times for Leeds in all competitions, scoring 41 goals.

I personally do not want Robert Snodgrass back. I do not think Robert would want it either. I feel like Robert Snodgrass will always have the mentality now of being a Premier League player, and I just do not think a move to a lower division would benefit him at all.

Also, I do not think Leeds could take his huge weekly wage onto their books as well. Leeds already have some big stars on their payroll, and a man whose talents are so inconsistent isn’t work a move for. Leeds can definitely do better, and I think it is just a matter of time before Leeds sign another winger.

What do you think? Do you like the idea of having Robert Snodgrass back? If so, how much would you pay for him? Let me know in the comments!
