Lorimer: Leeds are top six Premiership club

Leeds United director Peter Lorimer says they're a Premiership top six club.

Having just returned to the Championship, Lorimer insists Leeds will do everything to get themselves back to where they belong.

"I firmly believe we are potentially a top-six-in-the-country club - we are as big as your Villas and your Tottenhams," Lorimer told the Telegraph.

"Potentially 'crowd base' we are as big as these clubs and bigger than most clubs in the Premiership but you only get there by achievement.

"You don't get there by saying we are and I think everyone knows potentially we can be there but we have to get there.

"When you can command crowds of 38,000 like we did on the last day of the season everyone is looking from the outside thinking what kind of football club is this."
