Leeds United have been forced into a number of changes surrounding Elland Road this season after promotion to the Premier League.
Andrea Radrizzani has had to upgrade the media facilities and floodlights at the ground, as well as a change of pitch midway through the campaign.
There have had to be changes outside of the ground too, with the Fullerton Park site currently undergoing maintenance behind the West Stand.
Reliable journalist Beren Cross has shared an image of the redevelopment ahead of this evening’s clash against Southampton on his personal Twitter account.

This got the attention of plenty of fans.
Cross described it as a “compound” and it will help store TV fans for live coverage of games, as well as house away fans to their section of the ground from the car park.
Radrizzani is certainly working his magic at Elland Road, and the San Francisco 49ers with Paraag Marathe will also be helping.
The NFL franchise have recently increased their stake in the club and have outlined their vision to create a new home for the Whites, possibly their first hint at transforming Elland Road.
The Whites aren’t just going to stop at changes forced on them by the Premier League, and also want to expand the capacity of the stadium in years to come.
Radrizzani has claimed that expanding the ground to 50,000 is one of his priorities, but that it won’t happen for another two years, at least.
In the meantime, these small upgrades will have to do.
