Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says the club are planning to take part in an overseas tournament has part of their build up to the 2012/13 season.

The season will kick off two weeks later than normal next season on August 18th because of the Olympics and Bates says they are planning on more games including a trip abroad.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Bates said, “What we are planning is to have extended pre-season friendlies both at home and overseas.

“There is one tournament on the horizon, which is a way for our fans to have an overseas holiday.”

Leeds were rumoured to be taking part in a three-team tournament last summer on the Algarve in Portugal, which eventually came to nothing.

Last summer, Leeds played one game overseas with a trip to Norway for a game with Sandefjord in July.
