Leeds United have a long-term plan to move away from their training base at Thorp Arch to relocate somewhere that is better equipped for their needs, according to the Yorkshire Post.

The newspaper reports that part of Leeds’ plan is to upgrade their academy from Category 2 to Category 1, but the current coronavirus-enforced suspension of football means that he usual evaluations that take place in May will not happen.

It is understood that clubs who are trying to raise the status of their academies will have to wait until the end of next season to do so but Leeds are in talks to see if that can be avoided.

Upgrading their academy is just one of a number of things that Leeds reportedly want to do to improve themselves.

The Yorkshire Post adds that relocating away from Thorp Arch is another plan that the Whites have, although that could be something that doesn’t happen for a long time.

It just goes to show how much vision Andrea Radrizzani has had for the club.

Although there has been speculation about him selling shares or completely selling up and leaving Elland Road, you cannot deny that the Italian businessman has had nothing but the future on his mind in his time in Yorkshire.

It is one of the main reasons why Leeds are currently top of the Championship table, seven points clear of third and looking on course for promotion to the Premier League.
