Reports are beginning to surface that the exclusivity period that was declared ‘dead’ last week, now exists again, as Ken Bates looks to wrap up the sale of Leeds United.
It is a bizarre turn of events from bonkers Bates, after it was claimed his valuation of the club changed at the last minute, with a fury of internet activity claiming the deal had collapsed. A most notable claim came from the Leeds United Supporters Trust, who perhaps should have left it up to the club to break the news as just days after the LUST claimed the deal was dead; the deal is now back on … strange right?
Leeds United fans have been left with severe headaches, trying to keep up with what is in the pipeline at Leeds United, but now Ken Bates has seen the point of no return; now happy to continue talks with the original buyers of the club. Unknown to most who is actually involved, it could a very interesting week in the life of Leeds United.
In his 80’s it seems Ken Bates may have finally lost the plot, after a months of speculation, the deal has ran hot and cold like a runaway bride, but now it seems old Ken has seen the errors of his way, and the mad man from Chelsea could well cash in on a somewhat eventful last 7 seven years.
As the week grows, be sure to keep your eye on the takeover, as it could spell the re-birth of the Mighty Whites, with Neil Warnock most certainly still in the market for another few ‘star’ additions. One name on his list is Nicky Maynard from West Ham, with a loan deal viable if the takeover can finally be sorted in the next few weeks.
