Leeds chairman Ken Bates has revealed the club have been invited to arbitration by the Football League as they look to overturn their 15-point deficit.

The 15-point penalty was imposed on the Yorkshire club in August by the League who claimed they had not properly followed insolvency policy. It followed the deduction of 10 points after the club went into administration following relegation to League One in May last year.

The club served a High Court writ on the League earlier this month challenging the 15-point deduction and Bates has told the Yorkshire Post: "The letter arrived from the League´s solicitors suggesting that this should go to arbitration with a Court of Appeal judge."
