Red Bull denies takeover bid for Leeds United

The beverage company Red Bull has denied media reports that it would take over Leeds United.

"Another involvement in football is not planned," Oliver Mintzlaff, head of global football marketing of the Group, told the German news agency dpa.

He was responding to speculation in the British media, citing suspended Leeds owner Massimo Celino as saying the Austrian company had submitted a £60 million bid for the club.

Red Bull is currently involved in three football clubs - German second division RasenBallsport, Leipzig Red Bull Salzburg and New York Red Bulls.
