A statement from GFH Capital, owners of Leeds United Football Club...
Since it was announced on February 7 that a deal had been agreed for Eleonora Sport to purchase a 75% stake-holding in the club, subject to Football League approval, we have been working closely with the governing body’s requests for information to satisfy the process.
We know it is frustrating for our supporters, but please rest assured that Eleonora Sport and GFH Capital are co-operating fully with the Football League’s requirements and are working towards a conclusion.
GFH Capital remains in full control of Leeds United until such time that the share transaction is ratified by the Football League. We all want to see matters concluded as swiftly possible so we can concentrate on the future.
David Haigh has left his role within GFH Capital in order to concentrate fully on his role as managing director of Leeds United and is responsible full time for the day to day business operations. David has the full support of both GFH Capital and the club’s board.
We would like to thank the Leeds United fans for your continued support.
