Good Morning. It's Tuesday 19th November, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

Leeds U23's back to winning ways

Leeds U23s shrugged off their Derby County knightmare as Carlos Corberan's youngsters recorded a well deserved victory over fellow Yorkshire rivals Bansley. A goal in each half from Ryan Edmondson and Jordan Stevens was enough to give the Whites three valuable points, and more importantly touching distance of Wigan, Hull, Barnsley and Crewe.

With Leeds having at least two games in hand over three out of the four mentioned clubs, theoretically could draw level with pacesetters Birmingham City and Nottingham Forest on 21 points. Goal difference, with the seven conceded against the Rams would mean they would have to settle for third place. Senior trio Hernandez, Berardi and Douglas all played 45 minutes without any recurrence of injury.

ESPN - Talks between Radrizzani and PSG Al-Khelaifi advance

American based Sports magnate ESPN are claiming that talks between Andrea Radrizzani and PSG owner Nasser al-Khelaifi have taken a significant step forward, although a take over is still a long way off.

More talks are planned in the days to come, and while sources say there won't be a full agreement soon they say things are moving in a positive direction. A few reasons can explain the delay over the takeover, like the uncertainty over Brexit, the current difficult situation at beIN Sport and for Qatar diplomatically in general.

Kemar Roofe has netted 5 times in 7 games for Belgian First Division A club Anderlecht. Were Leeds too hasty in letting the 26 year old leave Elland Road? Should Leeds have got more than 5.4m?
