Premier League outfit Newcastle United are set to make a belated return to Elland Road for a pre-season friendly in July.

The Magpies haven't set foot inside Elland Road since a 2-2 draw in 2003/04 where United's season ended in tears; relegation to the Championship. The fixture is set to be scheduled on the weekend of 20/21st July 30/31st.

Former Leeds striker Alan Smith could be set to make an Elland Road return since his infamous departure to Manchester United in 2004. Smith, who received a torrent of abuse in United's away pre-season fixture to Newcastle in 2009, would be on the end of an interesting reception should Newcastle boss Alan Pardew choose to select him.

United drew 0-0 with the Magpies in the recent pre-season friendly at St James Park.
