Ken Bates´ bid to regain control of Leeds has been placed on hold with creditors asked to return next week for a recount of the vote.

Bates, who placed the club in administration on May 4 with debts of £35million, is expected to have his offer to buy back the club accepted by the slimmest of margins.

But because the creditors vote was so close, the club´s administrators KPMG adjourned the meeting and the recount will be held on Monday morning at Elland Road.
