Ex-Premier League player Dean Windass believes that Liverpool midfielder James Milner won’t mind going back to where his football career started this summer.

James Milner started his top flight career at Leeds United in 2002 before he left the club to sign for Newcastle United two years later. The Liverpool vice captain has previously said that he could go back to Leeds United later in his career. Milner talked about going back to Leeds United in an interview with Sky Sports.

The 35-year-old Liverpool midfielder is at the veteran age and he could have a big decision to make this summer with his Reds contract set to expire. It remains to be seen whether Liverpool will offer him a new deal that will see him stay on Merseyside beyond the summer.

Ex-Hull City striker Windass played 105 times in the Premier League during his career and he spoke about James Milner and the possibility of him returning to Leeds United in a chat with Football Fancast. He also said the Liverpool player won’t want to return to Leeds United to be a squad player. According to him, Milner will most likely be a squad player if he returns to play in the current Leeds United setup under Marcelo Bielsa.

Milner is the assistant to Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson and he’s one of the leaders in the Reds team under German tactician JurgenKlopp. He was part of the Liverpool squad that ended the seven-year wait for a major trophy by lifting the Champions League title at the end of the 2018/19 campaign. Liverpool won Europe’s premier club competition that season after beating fellow Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final played at the new Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

Retired England international Milner also played his part last season as Liverpool ended a 30-year wait for the league title.
