Takeover Tuesday - The end of Ken?
The takeover saga is finally close to being resolved at Elland Road and tomorrow looks like the day Leeds fans have been dreaming of for the last 7 years.
With Ken Bates' departure reaching its final stages and the prospect of an influx of money to the club, the mood among Leeds fans has been as positive as I can ever remember in recent history.
Leeds released an official statement on the takeover last Tuesday confirming the club had 'granted an exclusivity period to enable a potential investor to carry out the appropriate due diligence' one of the last steps before a takeover. A process Leeds anticipate will be fairly straightforward.
Adam Pope (@apopey on twitter) told BBC Look North this evening, the due diligence of the takeover may have already been completed and all that needs to be done is the final money transfer into the bank.
After weeks of Leeds fans constantly refreshing their twitter feeds and checking the clubs website, many believe tomorrow is the big day.
Niel Warnock is sure to be happy with the increased transfer kitty and is already planning on reuniting himself with one of his most trusted former players, Paddy Kenny.
Kenny has been linked with a move to Leeds all summer and a bid of £500,000 should capture him from Queens Park Rangers.
