Diego Llorente has acknowledged that he is trying “everything possible” to leave Leeds United and return to AS Roma on loan this summer.
Llorente, 29, is back with Jose Mourinho’s squad after spending the second part of the previous season on loan at Roma. He obtained his first loan just one month after agreeing to a new term at Elland Road.
“I’ve always known I’d do everything possible to stay, not just to remain a part of such a historic club, but also to be back alongside my team-mates to fight together, with our fans, to achieve targets that we deserve,” Llorente said.
Diego Llorente is unlikely to play again for Leeds United, as the club seeks younger players under new manager Daniel Farke.
