Norwich City striker Luciano Becchio wants to re-join former club Leeds United in the January transfer window with his days at Carrow Road likely to be numbered.

The Argentine forward has spent the first half of the season on loan at Rotherham United where he made just five appearances for Steve Evans' side, before returning to The Canaries at the start of this month upon the expiration of the deal.

With Becchio's future at Norwich appearing bleak, with a new manager yet to be appointed following the resignation of Neil Adams earlier this week, the player's agent has revealed he wants to return to Leeds.

"Leeds is Luciano's home and if they want to sign him they know where we are," the 31-year-old's agent Horacio Rossi told Press Association Sport.

"Leeds is always going to be a special club for Luciano. It's a club that he loves."

Without a win in their last five matches, just a point above the relegation zone in the Championship and out of the FA Cup after defeat to Sunderland, Leeds are in desperate need of additional resources heading into the second half of the season.

Speaking on the eve of the January transfer window opening, manager Neil Redfearn said owner Massimo Cellino, who could yet to be forced to sell his shares should the Italian owner lose an appeal against the Football League deeming him unfit to run the club, is ready to spend.

"We have to be thinking about bringing players in," Redfearn said. "Massimo has ideas, one or two players up his sleeve; I've put my input in where we need to strengthen.

"We do lack Championship experience, something we have to try and address. We've got to look at everything.

"I was asked my opinion on where we should strengthen. I have put my input in but ultimately it's up to Massimo, that's where it's at."
