Leeds United goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald has told the German media he’s open to returning to Werder Bremen in the future.

Wiedwald signed for Leeds United last summer, and his move to England was seen as controversial, after suggestions in the German press he was forced out by the Bundesliga side.

Speaking to Bild, Wiedwald was asked about his exit from Werder Bremen, and if he had plans to return to his hometown club: “Then I would have to talk about goalkeeper errors and a change of coach. No, I wanted to shape my future myself. I do not want to exclude that. I could imagine a third spell at Werder.”

Wiedwald recently signed for Leeds United on a three year deal in the summer after it became apparent he had no future at Werder Bremen.

It was well documented former Werder Bremen coach Alexander Nouri was bringing in Jiri Pavlenka from Slavia Prague to replace Wiedwald, despite the 27 year old being the German side’s No.1 last season.

However, Pavelnka has won over his critics in recent weeks, and the Czech has been one of the standout keepers in the Bundesliga this season.
