The ball is well and truly rolling in terms of the future of Elland Road. Richard Fleming, working for KPMG administrators, has today confirmed that he has been contacted by several groups regarding possible bids by outside consortiums.

Although in the early stages of any real move, this does seem to confirm what was previously reported here on Leeds.VitalFootball. The potential for the Elland Road club is massive, and this is being realised by some of the biggest names in the business world including Duncan Revie (son of United legend, Don Revie) and Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft.

Allen is also a huge sports fan – he is the owner of two American sports franchises, the NFL`s Seattle Seahawks and the NBA`s Portland Trail Blazers – and has already signalled his interest in English football by holding preliminary talks with Southampton Football Club.

Hears hoping the best group gets the post and we can finally get our great club on the long road to recovery.
