It was at tea-time on Tuesday that the statement fans had long expected was released by Elland Road. But is it an end, or a new beginning?
This is the club’s statement in full:
“Further to our previous statement of the 29th May, Leeds United can confirm they have granted an exclusivity period to enable a potential investor to carry out the appropriate due diligence.
“It is anticipated this will be a fairly straightforward process.
“A confidentiality clause prevents the club from making any further comment. However, our discussions with them have left us very comfortable that they have the financial resources to support the club and that they will have no issues in satisfying the requirements of the Football League’s Owners and Directors Test, unlike many of the previous approaches we have had to endure.
“We will not be making any further announcements in the near future.”
