Initial plans from the EFL were for Leeds United and other clubs to return to training in mid-May, although that may be pushed back.

The BBC has released a report with the strict measures that the Premier League are set to take for training to restart, including the disinfecting of pitches and balls.

According to the report, tackling will be banned as well as training being restricted to groups of five if possible.

It is suggested that Premier League bosses are hopeful to return to training as early as Monday, and if that happens – Championship clubs could also follow on the same day.

With training returning, it is getting closer to football also coming back and the Championship being able to finish the final nine games of the season.

Leeds Live journalist Beren Cross revealed recently that some players have still been using the facilities at Thorp Arch during the lockdown, making sure to stick to social distancing rules.

That should mean that the facilities at the training ground are ready to use as soon as possible, as they would have been making sure to keep the grounds clean and safe for these players.

Marcelo Bielsa has also turned up at the training ground in Boston Spa during the break and left a list of demands which included cleaning things such as signs to how he expects them usually according to The Athletic.

The idea is that if Thorp Arch is in perfect condition, Leeds should be in the best place to return whenever it is possible and that certainly seems to be nearing.

With the Premier League discussing these rules in a recent meeting, you can expect the EFL to follow a similar road with their demands and Leeds look in a great place for that.
