Leeds United are edging closer to completing a deal to build a new training headquarters according to Football Insider.
The report claims that the Yorkshire-based side are funding a potential move on the edge of the city centre, with a fee in the region of £25m being discussed between both parties involved.
It is also claimed by Football Insider that a move to the new training ground would involve the club’s academy set-up being upgraded to a Category One status.
A move to the potential new site isn’t expected to be completed anytime soon though, with a number of discussions still to be had over the move.
Marcelo Bielsa has completely transformed the club from top to bottom, and Andrea Radrizzani and the Leeds board are seemingly keen to start afresh at a new training ground in the future.
Leeds will be hoping that they will be playing their football in the Premier League next season, as they look to bounce back from their play-off semi-final defeat to Derby County last term.
The Whites are next in action on Sunday when they take on Barnsley at Oakwell, in what could be a potentially tricky test for Bielsa’s men.
This is an exciting update for the Elland Road faithful.
Leeds are a team that are going places under Marcelo Bielsa’s guidance, and I think this is a step in the right direction for the club this season.
They’ll be hoping to get this deal over the line as soon as possible, so that they can start planning ahead for the move to their new training complex.
