The whole ‘Leeds United and Spygate’ saga continues to rumble on where the club are concerned.
The English Football League (EFL) have been meeting over the past few days to discuss what punishment if any, The Whites should face for their role in ‘spying’ on Derby County last month.
However, according to Phil Hay, it appears The Elland Road outfit remain ‘in the dark’ regarding a decision.
if the EFL takes no action then it would make no difference to Leeds when the statement drops. But if the club are to be charged/punished, they want it to hold until Monday. Leeds are in the dark about what the outcome will be.

The Yorkshire Evening Post journalist, who took to Twitter to answer questions from fans regarding the situation, also revealed that Leeds were ‘holding out until Monday’ should a decision have serious consequences for the club.
The outcome is not yet known and Leeds can only hope that they do not receive any bad news ahead of their fixture with Middlesbrough.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side will face Middlesbrough in the Championship on Saturday following their defeat to Norwich City last weekend, which saw them lose grip of the top spot.
The Argentine will want to see his side return to winning ways and will not want anything potentially damaging to distract his players from being able to put in a solid performance.
However, there would be an argument that the EFL have a duty to make an announcement as soon as a decision is reached and Leeds should not have a say in what the governing body decides to do.
