Leeds have submitted revised plans for their east stand development at Elland Road which include the creation of a club museum.

The new proposals will be put before city councillors next week and the Championship club hope to get the green light for the museum, which would be open on both matchdays and non-matchdays and be accessed via the new reception.


"The club has a great history and we should celebrate that," a Leeds spokesman said.

"We had the highs of the 1960s and early 70s, the low of the 80s, the rise again under Howard Wilkinson and David O'Leary and then there's the ups and downs of the past decade.

"It hasn't all been success by any stretch, but it's all part of our past and makes us the club we are today.

"A museum would be a great place to tell people and educate people about who we are and why we are who we are."
