Ex-Leeds fullback Halle can see BVB star Haaland making England move

Former Leeds and Wolves defender Gunnar Halle can see Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland returning to England.

Halle, who remains a crucial part of the national team set-up, worked alongside coach Erland Johnsen during Haaland's first steps onto the international scene during his early teens.

He told the Daily Star: "It's difficult to say with the Spanish and English interest there are so many things now that have to be considered with his agent and everything and the money of course will be quite a lot!

“But of course I think a little bit of his heart will be in England because his dad was playing there with Leeds and City but also his connection with Ole Gunnar so I think his Dad will maybe play a part."

He added: “Erling will be thinking about where he can have more success in the way he is playing and not the money, he will get a lot of money anywhere.

“I think they will see where he can play his best football and where the team and manager can help him - so it's difficult to say at this moment."
