Football is not set to return at the end of April for Leeds United this season, according to the Daily Mail.

According to the report, clubs within the EFL have already been told that it will be impossible for football to return within that timescale.

It is suggested that a new date for the season to resume is set to be announced as early as next week as clubs await the next steps in the Coronavirus pandemic.

A meeting between the EFL and the Premier League is set to take place to determine when football can return in England.

With a total lockdown announced by Boris Johnson for the next three weeks, it would definitely be almost impossible for football to return although many fans across the country will have had their fingers crossed.

Clubs have already been informed of the news and will be taking measures to make sure they are able to fully function during the enforced break.

Leeds have revealed on Thursday that their squad and senior staff have accepted wage deferrals to make sure they can manage financially and avoid redundancies at the club.

Many other EFL clubs are expected to follow suit with Birmingham already doing the same, with no incomes such as matchdays bound to happen until at least May with this latest announcement.

Football below the National League has been declared null and void by the FA on Thursday, something Leeds fans will be desperate to avoid.

Many non-league clubs want to go into hibernation, though, and the situation is very different in the Championship and Premier League.
