'If It's Football, It's Vital'

New Twist in the Leeds United Saga?

The Daily Mail are reporting that ex-Newcastle Chairman Freddie Sheppard is taking an interest in Leeds United, with Ken Bates happy to consider selling the club.

Bates and Sheppard were reportedly spotted having a discussion regarding the future of the club, with the Newcastle United supporter keen to get back into football, having sold his stake in The Magpies just a few months ago.

It always seemed to be a case of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’ Ken Bates would sell the club that he reacquired in the summer, despite the administration regulations being somewhat ignored, a move that has prompted the FA to currently bar Leeds from FA membership. Bates will have to sort out the non-footballing side of Leeds United’s debts before being able to vote on association matters as a member.

What I wasn’t expecting, was Freddie Sheppard.

Other people told you that on the forum Skydave, everyones entitled to their own opinion. I'm just covering the news, be it factual or speculation. Nobody knows for sure yet apart from Freddie and Kenny so we'll just have to wait it out until we get some more news.

We need to have financial stability and for all the crap to clear up and we need to do it as soon as.

Can Ken sell the club now i thought as part of the agreement with creditors club couldn't change hands for 12 months, so Sheppard could only buy a share of club?
SkyDave Leeds Fan
