The battle for control of Leeds is expected to be resolved in court, it was revealed at a stormy creditors´ meeting at Elland Road on Friday.

Creditors voted by the slimmest of margins to accept Ken Bates´ offer to buy back the club, but it was so close administrators KPMG were forced to abandon the meeting and call for a recount on Monday morning.

KPMG released the following statement: "The creditors´ meeting has been adjourned without a conclusion being reached due to the first count of the creditors´ votes on the creditors´ voluntary agreement (CVA) proposal producing a very close result. This means administrators KPMG wish to recount."
