Luciano Becchio has declared his love for Leeds United's supporters, taking the opportunity to thank the club's fans for their many messages of support.

The 32-year-old is a free agent, and therefore able to move outside the transfer window system, with a number of Leeds fans feeling their club should look to re-sign him; Becchio turned out for Leeds between 2008 and 2013 and trained with Bristol City earlier this summer.

The striker is still a firm fan of Leeds and has hinted he would be more than willing to return by expressing his continued love for the Yorkshire club's supporters.

Becchio took to Twitter to write: "Thanks to the fans of Leeds for the messages. I love you."

The 32-year-old Argentine last played for Rotherham United in a brief spell earlier this year.


Leeds had been hunting for a striker to add to their ranks before the transfer window closed and failed with a deadline day swoop for Arsenal hitman Yaya Sanogo.

If the Whites wish to reinforce their squad outside of the window they can only chase free agents, as the emergency loan window has been scrapped.

And Becchio, who was prolific at Leeds, appears to be available.
