Leeds announced that they have struck a deal with the 49ers enterprise group yesterday in what could be a good step forward.
I’ll be honest, I know very little about the NFL but I have heard of the team and I do think that, business-wise, this is a good move.
It’s a minority stake that they are getting and one that should see more cash be made available for us to make a dent in the transfer window.
Andrea Radrizzani is using his contacts with this one, then, as he posted this on Twitter yesterday:

You could announce Richard Branson as the new investor, doesn’t mean you’ll spend the money on the team does it. #timeforaction

Radz has had some issues at times during his tenure in charge and we’ve given him stick but he does deserve credit for what looks a shrewd deal.
I’ve been impressed by the work he has done in recent weeks and I’m genuinely intrigued to see what else is in the pipeline.
