Bates threatens legal action

Published Add your comment

Leeds chairman Ken Bates has vowed to take legal action if the club is sold to a rival bidder.

Leeds´ administrators KPMG put the club up for sale on Friday night after Bates´ buy-back deal was challenged in the High Court by the Inland Revenue.

KPMG have set a deadline of 5pm on Monday to receive offers for the club with two consortia believed to be holding talks about joining forces and mounting a ´super-bid´, but Bates has warned he will not go out without a fight and confirmed he had re-submitted his offer for the club.
