New Leeds Adidas home kit leaked as Orta & Gelhardt image posted on Twitter
The new Leeds United home kit from Adidas has been leaked online after an image was posted showing Victor Orta and new signing Joe Gelhardt.
The image was posted on Leeds fan site Right In The Gary Kellys shortly after Gelhardt signed for Leeds.
It comes after the front-of-shirt sponsor was announced as sports betting company SBOTOP earlier in the day.
Both Jack Harrison (whose new loan deal was announced earlier) and Gelhardt were shown wearing the new Adidas training kit in the official photographs.
However, the home kit seems to have slipped out and you can see it in all of its glory below.

According to Sky Sports, Leeds are one of just four Premier League clubs who haven’t officially released their new kits.

It’s not like Leeds United to let this happen twice in a day.
First, Celton Manx (parent company of SBOTOP) jumped the gun on the front-of-shirt sponsorship deal, with Manx Radio announcing the deal in a story online.
That was followed quickly by an official Leeds tweet 20 minutes latest.
That’s a deal they would have wanted to announce themselves, but it gave a massive scoop to a tiny radio station.
Second, is the home kit itself. The good news for Leeds is that the leak has gone down extraordinarily well with fans who love the simplicity of the shirt.
This might well be the least controversial of the kits, with the blue and green striped away kit and rumours of a maroon third kit currently splitting supporters.
