Sport "It would be huge" - Exclusive: David Norris discusses idea of 30 y/o signing for Leeds United
Sainz sees Norris as a potential World Champion
Carlos Sainz puts his former McLaren team-mate Lando Norris among a group of drivers who can be World Champion in the right car. Norris burst onto the Formula 1 scene in 2019 with McLaren and while he has always shown potential, the Briton has truly taken his performances to the next level in 2021. After five rounds, Norris already has two podium finishes to his name, while his worst result so far in the McLaren MCL35M is a P8 at the Spanish Grand Prix.
Danny Rose is now a free agent after seeing out the last few years at Tottenham Hotspur not playing a single first-team game, but despite his lack of game time former Leeds United midfielder David Norris believes that he would be a great signing for his former club.
Rose left Leeds back in 2007 when he was a promising and exciting youngster and heabout his exit after promises were not kept, with a move to Spurs proving to be the right decision as he established himself as one of the top full-backs in the country.
Lando Norris gives Indy 500 hint as Helio Castroneves becomes historic four-time winner
F1 ace Lando Norris couldn't hide his interest in one day racing the iconic Indy 500.It's one of American sport's great annual events and, after a year with the race held in front of empty grandstands, the fans returned once again to cheer one of the most popular drivers on the grid to victory.
The 30-year-old has beento make a homecoming to Leeds by former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor who believes that it would be a good move for both club and player, and would potentially provide him with some much-needed first-team minutes.
It would be a sensational return for Rose, something many would not have expected to happen a few years ago, but Norris has backed his former club to sign the full-back as he spoke exclusively to:
“He wouldn’t be going to a small-time club from down the leagues, he’d be going back to Leeds when they are in the Premier League.
“So, it would be huge for him and it really could give him a new lease of life.”
It is quite obvious that Leeds are on the hunt for a new left-back this summer with Ezgjan Alioski set to leave the club unless a new deal could be sorted out but something that Rose would have to prove is that if he is a Marcelo Bielsa player and if he’s up to the physical demands.
The last first-team football that Rose played was for Newcastle United when he spent the second half of the 2019/20 season on loan with the Magpies but the club decided against making it a permanent move.
