Dubai Sheikh Wants Leeds United
Sheikh Samir Mirdad, leader of a Dubai-based corporation has expressed an interest to purchase Leeds United.
The chairman of the Linx Group of Companies in Dubai wants to talk to Ken Bates regarding a possible takeover. As it stands, provided that the CVA agreement is successfull Bates will regain control of the club, with Uncle Ken no doubt looking to make a personal profit.
Sheikh Mirdad told the Daily Star Sunday: 'Leeds United is a prestigious club that has, in the recent past, suffered setbacks. My vision is to bring the club back to its former glory.
'The club has a huge fanbase and because of the history and the desire of the people of Leeds to see Leeds United back in top-flight footbal we think this may be the ideal challenge for us.'
