LUFC On This Day - July 11th

A look back at what happened on July 11th in the recent Leeds United history.

2007
Leeds United chairman Ken Bates wins the race to purchase the club following administrators KPMG`s decision to sell Leeds United outside of the CVA (Company Voluntary Arrangement).

With a number of bids reported to have been made, for some bizarre reason it is Bates, who was targeted by Customs & Revenue for his 8p in the £1 offer to creditors who takes control of the club. Joint administrator Richard Fleming said: 'We received several offers for the business which we considered carefully. The approved deal represents the best result for creditors in the circumstances and we believe provides the club with the best chance of survival.'

Scunthorpe United are interested in signing Jermaine Beckford who spent the second half of last season on loan at Glanford Park.

Iron boss Nigel Adkins is reported to be ready to offer £250,000 for the striker.

2008
Leeds start their pre-season campaign with a 1-1 draw at York City with Leeds goal coming from Beckford.

2009
Leeds boss Simon Grayson says he is interested in signing former loan defender Sam Sodje. The defender spent the end of last season on loan at Elland Road and is now a free agent after coming to the end of his contract at Reading.

2012
Leeds United have completed the signing of goalkeeper Paddy Kenny from Queens Park Rangers.

The 34 year old has signed for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal at Elland Road and joins up with manager Neil Warnock for a fourth time.
