Liverpool successfully retain services of £120,000-a-week midfielder

According to Yorkshire Evening, Leeds United have abandoned their interest in bringing Liverpool ace James Milner back to Elland Road.

The midfielder has revealed in the past that he would be keen on returning to his boyhood side, and the Whites were keen on striking a deal over the transfer window.

However, following Leeds United’ failure to earn promotion back to English top-flight, the Whites will no longer attempt to lure the 33-year-old back to Elland Road.

Yorkshire Evening confirmed that the Championship club will not be making an offer for the midfielder when asked by a fan over James Milner’s possible return to Leeds.

James Milner has spent four years on Merseyside with the Reds following his move from Manchester City, making over 200 appearances for Liverpool during that time.

The England international has been a key member of the Reds team in recent years, with his versatility making him a fan favourite at Merseyside, and it appears as if he will be staying at the Premier League over the summer.

Jurgen Klopp knows that James Milner is a key member of his side and without him, Liverpool would be fragile in some games in the Premier League when the full-backs were injured at the crucial time of the season.

James Milner is receiving £120,000 per week and is an integral part of the club, and the Englishman has admitted that he has considered the move to the former club if they win the promotion to the Premier League.
