Report reveals when Leeds could complete training ground move after council update

A training ground move has been on the table at Leeds United for more than a year now.

Both Andrea Radrizzani and Angus Kinnear have made it clear that they want to see the Whites move to a complex much closer to Elland Road to make it easier for everyone involved at the club.

It has been revealed recently though, that the change might not be happening any time soon in West Yorkshire.

The council recently uploaded a document with public information on a number of sites across the city. One of those being the former Matthew Murray High School.

Leeds Live has revealed that it is up for sale in the 2021/22 financial year, meaning the Whites could complete the purchase in two years time.

It is suggested that the club would get a five-year lease to complete the work, but with their current lease at Thorp Arch not running out until 2027, it is unlikely there will be any transition completed before that.

Carlos Corberan has done a superb job with the academy since arriving at the club, and the ability for him to work with another group of youngsters at a state of the art facility could see an even better selection of players coming through the ranks.

The Spaniard will be chomping at the bit to get to work should the move be completed. There could be big changes made at the Whites before then though, with many tipping the Spaniard to take over the first team should Marcelo Bielsa leave the club for whatever reason.
