Leeds United fans have been treated to an early glimpse of the new home and third kits for next season, and The Square Ball’s Dan Moylan believes the leaked images are going to be very close to what goes on sale over the summer.
He also claimed that the light lilac third kit could signify a darker blue away kit.
The kits were leaked on the Footy headlines Twitter site which also leaked this season’s kits early last summer.

Talking on the latest episode of The Square Ball podcast Moylan said, “Footy Headlines is the sites that are doing these leaks, and the Leeds shirts have been leaked along with a load of other Adidas shirts that have been leaked like Man United and Arsenal.
“They’re generally, by and large, on the money.
“The home shirt, they’ve gone for white. I make this joke every year, bear with me.
“A greater talking point is the lilac third kit, it appears we’re getting a lilac-y accented by a darker purple kit. I think on balance a lot of people seem to like it.
“I do wonder what this means for the away kit, will that be a darker affair, does this hint towards a darker blue or do we get the much-fabled yellow kit?”
We like it
You can’t please all of the people all of the time and there have been some dissenters to the lilac third kit.
We like it. It’s different and modern and we think it will end up being a popular kit.
Footy Headlines got all the kits right for this season and they’re said to have links with some of the factories where the strips are manufactured.
Will we get the fabled yellow away kit?
Given the white and lilac we think a darker blue kit is much more likely now, which will leave more fans upset.
However, if you look at the backlash to this season’s kits and see how quickly it died down, Leeds don’t really have anything to worry about.
It’s not like they’re going to change the club badge…
