Leeds takeover: New signings

After Leeds United and the Dubai firm GFH Capital Limited signed a deal, Neil Warnock has confirmed he will meet with the new owners before Saturday's game.

Leeds' prepare for first game since takover

Leeds United take on Crystal Palace tomorrow in their first game since the takeover by Bahrain based investment bank GFH Capital.

Leeds, who have gone 7 games without a win in the Championship, face the daunting prospect of a home game against top of the table Crystal Palace. New signings Alan Tait and Jerome Thomas are both expected to make their debuts for Neil Warnock's injury and suspension hit squad.

Warnock's spending spree

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has wasted little time spending some of the money he's been given after yesterday's takeover by the Bahrain based investment bank GFH Capital.

He's brought in defender Alan Tait and winger Jerome Thomas on loan from Swansea and West Brom respectively and is already looking ahead to the opening of transfer window in January. Chris Dawkes has been at the club's Thorp Arch training ground for Calendar.

Leeds sign Alan Tait

Leeds United have signed Premier League defender Alan Tait on loan from Swansea City until January. The 30-year-old, who began his career at Manchester United, trained with the club this morning and goes straight into the squad for Saturday's game against top of the table Crystal Palace.

Leeds United takeover completed

The £50 million takeover of Leeds United by a Gulf-based investment bank has been finalised at last.

It may have been thought that Leeds fans - who have long been calling for owner Ken Bates to sell up - would have been overjoyed, but because the deal thrashed out with new owners GFH Capital will see Mr Bates stay on as chairman until the end of the season, and then become the club's president.

And as John Shires reports, while some fans are relieved it's finally happened, others remain sceptical.
