Aaron Lennon will not be making a move to his former side Leeds United this summer, according to Football Insider.
The 33-year-old is now in the final month of his contract with Burnley and is set to move on from the Lancashire side when his deal expires (Daily Mail).
However, Leeds boss, Marcelo Bielsa, is not looking at Lennon as an option as he would prefer to invest in young players to mould into his style of play.
The Leeds-born winger has been offered a one-month extension in order to see out the season at Burnley, according to the report.
Lennon joined the Clarets in 2018, following a three-year spell at Everton after leaving Tottenham in 2015 (Transfermarkt).
With clubs in the top two divisions set to enter the summer transfer window with a lack of cash to spend on new signings, it puts Lennon in a good position as a free agent.
The former-Spurs man made his mark at Leeds before joining the Lilywhites in 2005 where he became a fan favourite over his 10-year spell in N17.

Whether Lennon can still cut it in the Premier League is hard to judge as he has not really featured regularly at Burnley, however, as a free agent, he will hold the power going into the summer transfer window.
