Leeds United gets another seven days

Link: Another extension for Leeds

Bottom of the Premiership and £83m in debt, Leeds is in advanced negotiations with a Yorkshire-based consortium willing to buy the club.

The consortium’s offer was rejected but apparently a second, larger offer is now on the table.

One figure mentioned was £20m.

In a statement to the Stock Exchange, Leeds also said creditors had agreed to extend the ‘standstill agreement’ so that the takeover can be completed.

Consortium representative Gerald Krasner said: ‘I can confirm that negotiations are at a more advanced stage.’

Last month, Leeds managed to raise £5m to avoid administration, largely through a 25% wage deferral by the players.
