Leeds United are in the race to re-sign winger Robert Snodgrass from West Ham United, priced at 12/1 to join The Whites with SkyBet.

Snodgrass was the main man for Hull City last season in the Premier League before joining Premier League rivals West Ham United in the January transfer window for a hefty fee believed to be in the region of £10 million.

The Scottish international scored 9 goals in 24 games in all competitions for The Tigers in the first half of the season but struggled to replicate that form after making the switch to the London Stadium, and after 15 games yielded no goals, Snodgrass is looking for an escape route.

Carlos Carvalhal’s Sheffield Wednesday are the favourites to snap up the 29-year-old on a permanent deal, priced at 5/1 with SkyBet as the Portuguese manager looks to bolster The Owls’ squad ahead of two seasons of Play-Off disappointment.

Brighton & Hove Albion are second in the betting order at 7/1 followed by newly-relegated Middlesbrough, who are looking to add some attacking threat to a toothless attacking rotation that only contains Christian Stuani and Rudy Gestede, who have struggled for form over the past year or so.

Former club Leeds are notably fourth favourites to tie up a deal for the former Norwich winger, who spent 4 years of his career with The Whites between 2008 and 2010, bagging an impressive 35 goals in 168 appearances for the Yorkshire club.

It’s understood no official bids have been made yet, but it will only be a matter of time before a club snaps up the 29-year-old.
