Leeds started a fresh era on Friday morning as GFH Capital were unveiled as their new owners, with directors David Haigh and Salem Patel outlining their vision for the future.

The duo have been the frontmen for the Dubai-based investment company, who started talking to Leeds and outgoing owner Ken Bates about a takeover 206 days ago. That long journey was officially ended on Friday morning, with Haigh and Patel presented to the media.

"What we want to do is create a successful but sustainable club and I think every fan will be with us," Patel said. "English football is one of the most successful exports that England has at the moment. People are watching world over and being part of that is very exciting to us."
