The  Liverpool midfielder came through Leeds United academy two decades ago where he got promoted and made 54 appearances over two season for the club's first team.

In 2004, the former City player moved to Newcastle United in a £3.4million deal after the Whites [Leeds United] were relegated to the Championship.

Milner leaving the championship demoted club that year insisted he only left for their best interest.

However,  this season the Elland Road outfit under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa have made huge progress in the championship, appearing on the verge of a promotion to the Premier League.

Asked in an interview with Sky Sports, whether he has the intention of joining his boyhood club Leeds United, Milner said: "You never know in football, what's around the corner, but I just want to contribute and win as many trophies as I can for Liverpool and add to the great history here.

"I'm biased, but I think the Premier League will be a better place for Leeds in it, and it will be weird to play against them next season.

"It seems a long time ago since I pulled on that shirt, you look back at photos and see how big the shirts were back then.

"Plenty has changed since then, unfortunately I was part of the team that got relegated and they haven't come back and recovered just yet.

"It would be great to see them back next season and their fans are incredible as well."

If Leeds United eventually secured their promotion to the Premier League next season it would be their first comeback since 34-year-old Milner left the club.
