Leeds United is the latest club to have been linked to the child sex abuse football scandal.

Leeds, along with Blackpool, were named today by Gordon Taylor, the chief executive of the Professional Players' Association in an interview with Radio Five Live's Sportsweek.

More than 20 players have approached the FA over sex abuse claims

He said they were among up to seven clubs connected to the allegations of child sex abuse. He also revealed the number of players making such allegations was now more than 20 - and that he expected this to increase.

Mr Taylor told ITV News it would be 'naive' to think otherwise.
