Leeds owners ask fans for patience

Leeds United owners GFH Capital have asked fans to be patient as they look to secure new investment in the club. They told BBC Radio Leeds: "Please be patient. We can only be responsible for the future, and we can only be successful if the club is successful."

Previous owner Ken Bates remains in the position of chairman until the end of this season before becoming honorary president thereafter.

Some supporters have been concerned that Bates could yet step back into a more active role with the club but GFH say this will not be happening.

"Ken Bates cannot regain control of the club under the terms of the agreement that we have signed with him," they added.

Boss Neil Warnock admitted that he did not expect to still be in charge at the Championship club next season unless they gain promotion.

"We have not yet spoken to anyone regarding the manager's position," GFH said.

"As everyone is aware, Neil Warnock is under contract until the end of the season, and it would be wrong of us to discuss his future publicly at this time."
