Football Federation Australia boss Frank Lowy is being linked with a takeover bid for Leeds United.
Lowy, one of the richest men in Australia, has had representatives explore the prospect of buying Leeds.
A source told the Sun-Herald: ''He has corporate credibility in England through his business [Westfield] while football-wise he's seen as both passionate and intelligent. The view is any English club would be lucky to have him buy into it.
"'His interest has been kept quiet, but that's not unusual as these things [ownership] are normally staged behind closed doors and away from the public glare. They'll involve the 'golden circle' of lawyers, accountants and the like in somewhere like London now."
