49ers Enterprises funds update emerges with Leeds United transfer news

Leeds United have been positively affected by the 49ers takeover, with the new ownership having a good impact on club funding, as shared by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The newspaper shared on its website on Wednesday (11 October) that minutes from the last meeting between Angus Kinnear and the supporters’ advisory board had been released showing the 49ers had proposed stadium and training ground upgrades as well as funds for potential work in the upcoming transfer windows.

Following the Whites’ good start to the season, the club are content with Daniel Farke’s work at Elland Road so far and is keen to create an environment that will allow the manager to get the most out of his squad to climb the table and get the desired results on the pitch.

Leeds already had a busy summer transfer window, with a huge amount of players leaving Yorkshire following relegation to the Championship, but the latest minutes would suggest that it was only the beginning of a sizeable investment from the 49ers.

Right direction

It really feels as though everyone currently involved at Elland Road is pulling in the same direction, with everybody from the top downwards doing what is required to get the best results possible for Leeds United, both on the pitch and off of it.

For the 49ers to have positively impacted the club’s funding after only a matter of months in charge of Leeds is a testament to the work that they have done since arriving in English football and the latest minutes would suggest that it is set to continue.

All of Farke’s additions in the summer transfer window were sensible signings, representing a good blend of youth and experience without Leeds ever really having to break the bank to sign a single player, something that was often missing under Andrea Radrizzani.

However, the desire to improve facilities both at Elland Road and in the training ground shows that the new owners view this investment as a long-term project. The Whites seem to be in safe hands currently and by the sounds of it, Leeds supporters could be in for another exciting January transfer window when the new year rolls around.
