The official website of the Football League is carrying the following statement:
"The Board of The Football League met today to consider the current situation regarding Leeds United.
At the meeting, the Board were informed by their legal representatives that the club's administrator, KPMG, had delivered on Wednesday the final documentation requested by The League.
The Board therefore convened at the earliest opportunity.
The Board considered all the information submitted and authorised the Chairman to invite senior representatives of Leeds United 2007 Ltd. and KPMG to a meeting early next week with a view to seeking to make progress."
For those still interested in the fate of football in Leeds, the above statement is more meaningful if you remember that 'Leeds United' is the old limited liability company that went into administration and therefore KPMG is still its administrator. Leeds United 2007 Ltd is company of which Ken Bates is a director. Therefore, both are invited to meet the mandarins of the Football League
in order to represent the past and the future, hopefully, of League football in the city of Leeds.
