The former Whites striker has had a torrid time since leaving Yorkshire in 2010.
He joined Premier League side Everton on a free transfer, but struggled to hit his previous heights and was sold to Leicester City in the summer as he was regaining form.
While at Leicester he fell out with manager Nigel Pearson and was loaned to Championship rivals Huddersfield Town, then managed by Simon Grayson, who he worked closely with at Leeds.
He then joined Bolton Wanderers, but was once again loaned out to one of Grayson’s sides this season, as he joined League One side Preston North End on loan.
However, it now seems as though there might be a possibility he might move to Leeds, with Redfearn unwilling to comment on the suggestion that Leeds might be back in for him again.
