Following the leak of the Leeds United third kit, which has come in as a fresh lilac number, the away kit has been leaked by Footy Headlines.
It’s a deep navy shirt with a modern graphic pattern all over, said to be in purple by Footy Headlines.
The first peak at the shirt was posted on its Twitter page on Thursday morning.

It follows on from first glimpses of the new third kit and the new home kit.
There’s more detail of the kit on the Footy Headlines website.
Usually bang on the money
Footy Headlines normally get these leaks spot-on and this navy kit would make a lot of sense with a white and fairly light-looking lilac third kit.
Leeds would need a dark away kit to contrast with other clubs and we like the design.
The graphic print is the modern way to go but it doesn’t stand out as badly as some kits, like the Man City away strip.
Fans really want a yellow kit but that was unlikely and the compromise here is the use of “electricity yellow” for detail.
The post from Footy Headlines hasn’t been up long but the early verdict from fans is good.
That’s in contrast to the reaction Leeds got for their maroon strip last summer, which fans thought was far too close to red.
It means we’ll line up next season with plain white (natch), navy blue and lilac kits for the new campaign.
We approve and as MOT Leeds News columnist Paul Robinson told us – “Anything but red and I’m happy”.
Footy Headlines nailed first-look images of the current home and away kits and it has a very good track record with other clubs.
