In the recent weeks Leeds United forward Marcus Antonsson has been linked with a return to Sweden.

The Swede spent last season on loan at Blackburn Rovers and helped the club achieve promotion back to the Championship. Antonsson has now returned to Leeds United, but his future is uncertain at Elland Road.

Fotbol Direkt report there is a possibility the attacker could return to his home country this summer, with Swedish top flight clubs Hammarby and Malmö FF showing an interest. His former club Kalmar would also be keen to take him back.

However, the Swedish football outlet report Antonsson would have to take a wage cut if he wants to play in the Allsvenskan next season.

The 27 year old reportedly earns in the region of 750k Krona a month at Leeds United (£64K) and subsequently this would need to be resolved if he wants a return to Sweden.

With Leeds United expected to sign at least a couple of forwards this summer, with Jerry Mbakogu thought to be one, his chances next season seem limited.
