Sky Sports pundit Mark Bosnich has claimed that both Leeds United and West Brom should be handed promotion to the Premier League.

The former Manchester United stopper believes that in the ideal world, the Championship top-two will join the Premier League for a 22-team top-flight next season.

That idea has already been thrown out of the window, with the FA confirming that the idea of no relegation being scrapped at a recent meeting.

Bosnich claimed that if both Leeds and the Baggies were promoted, then five teams would be relegated in the following campaign.

“There are a lot of teams in and around that relegation zone who deep down – and it’s not a problem, it’s understandable as well – would probably want relegation scrapped,” he told Sky Sports.

“So you could probably understand that.

“Ideally, if you were able to set out a thing that was absolutely ideal in this moment of time I would scrap relegation and the two clubs that are far and away looking as though they’re going to get promoted from the Championship, West Brom and Leeds – promote them and then have five go down next season.”

EFL chairman Rick Parry has already come out to claim that the FA and the Premier League would be going against an agreement with the football league if there was no relegation.

The Athletic have also reported that the idea of an extended top-flight would be difficult to sell, meaning that there are really no potential chances of that happening.

Promotion will be settled one way or another, and Leeds will be keeping their eyes close on any further advancements in the coming weeks.
