Leeds takeover collapses, say fans trust

Published Add your comment

The proposed takeover of Leeds has collapsed, according to the Leeds United Supporters Trust.

Leeds confirmed on June 26 that an unnamed group of investors, believed to be from the Middle East, had been granted due diligence and it was widely expected a takeover deal would be reached soon after.

But there has since been no further information or updates from either the club or the proposed new owners and Leeds fans have grown increasingly cynical about the chances of a deal being struck. LUST issued the following statement on Twitter: "The Leeds United Supporters Trust can confirm that the deal to buy the club has now collapsed."
