Leeds chairman Ken Bates has told fans not to place the blame for the drawn-out takeover of the Championship club at his door.

Bates opened negotiations with Bahrain-based Gulf Finance House (GFH) in June but, despite a series of statements and counter-statements from both parties, a deal remains unsigned. According to Bates, the delay is nothing to do with him, with the former Chelsea owner claiming he is ready to sign over a club he took control of seven years ago.

"I'd like to be able to say something but there is a confidentiality agreement which seems to be a bit one sided," he said. "By GFH's standards this is not a big deal, so I say to Leeds fans, don't blame me."
