Becchio move to Leeds turned down by Cellino

Former Leeds striker Luciano Becchio will not be making the move back to Yorkshire after Leeds owner Massimo Cellino turned down the chance to resign the Argentine, according to the Yorkshire Post.

Becchio was a fans favourite in his time at Elland Road.

Becchio was a fans favourite in his time at Elland Road.

The 30 year old was a fan favourite in his spell at Elland Road, scoring 75  goals in 190 appearances after his move from Mérida UD in 2008 for around £300k, and helped Leeds gain promotion back to the Championship in 2010 by scoring 15 goals that season.

In 2012/13, Becchio went on an incredible goalscoring run, scoring 19 goals by the end of January, and earned a move to the Premier League with Norwich City, but his form since has been poor.

The Argentine has only played 13 games since his move for £2m, and hasn’t scored in any of those games. Now with Norwich rejoining Leeds in the Championship, The Canaries are wanting to offload any inflated wages off the salary bill, and Becchio has been offered round.

Becchio was offered to Leeds, alongside Southampton striker Billy Sharp who has been told he can leave The Saints on a free transfer by Ronald Koeman, but Cellino has turned down the chance to sign them, killing any hopes Leeds fans had of resigning their former hero.
