They`ve played for both

There have been thirteen players through the years who have played for both clubs.

Alan Noble was the first, a right winger who played sixty three times for Leeds between 1922 and 1925 he joined Millwall in 1927 after a spell at Brentford.

There have been eight this century who have signed for both during their career,
Darren Huckerby - Had a loan spell at Millwall in 1996 before joining Coventry form Newcastle. Joined Leeds in 1999 and stayed with the club for just over a year scoring six goals in fifty six appearances.

Noel Whelan - Started his career at Leeds in 1993 and had a spell at Millwall in 2003.

Jermaine Wright - Started his career in 1992 at Millwall without making an appearance in two years at the club. Joined Leeds in 2004 and made fourty appearances in two years for the Whites. In the middle of those two years he had a loan spell at the Den in 2005 making sixteen appearances.

Stephen McPhail - Spent eight years at Leeds starting in 1996 making almost one hundred appearances, had a short loan spell at Millwall in 2002 making three appearances.

Jody Morris - Had a short spell at Leeds in the 2003-04 season.
Signed for Millwall in the summer of 2004 and spent three years at the club.

Graham Stack - Keeper Stack had loan spells at both clubs, firstly at Millwall in 2004 when he made thirty appearances. He made twelve appearances for Leeds whilst on loan from Reading in 2006.

David Livermore - Probably the most controversial, was at Millwall for seven years making over three hundred appearances between 1999 and 2006.
Signed for Leeds on July 21st 2006, he left ten days later to join Hull City. Rumour as it that Dennis Wise the then Leeds manager admitted he`d already got enough players in that position and was unlikely to feature that often.
