Could this be Leeds United’s new Adidas away shirt?

Ever since the rumours of Leeds United signing a new kit deal with Adidas for the 2020/2021 season there have been concept kits and speculation all over social media. But now football rumours website Footy Headlines has revealed what it claims is a leak of Leeds United’s new Adidas away shirt for next season. The shirt features a clean, classic Adidas look, with stripes in two shades of blue, combined with gold Adidas stripes and a tape on the inner neck. There are some echoes with the 1994/95 blue and green shirt work by Tony Yeboah and the 2008/09 blue striped shirt work by Jermaine Beckford.

The Adidas logo is embroidered on the right of the chest with the Leeds United shield on the left-hand side. The two-tone blue stripes continue onto the back and sleeves as well and on the back, just below the collar, is a small Yorkshire rose. There are no sponsors logos on the ‘leaked’ images but 32Red still have a year left on their deal with Leeds having signed a two-year extension last summer. If these are images of the real design, Leeds will hope to wear this new shirt in their first Premier League campaign since 2003/04 next season following the switch from Kappa.

What do you think? Is it Leeds enough for you?

A few days on and I still don't like it one bit . Hoping it's a joke or hoax as I won't be getting this if it's for real . Been spoilt by Kappa maybe , I like their stuff . Agree it looks Thistle Hotel era , but not as good and they were okay but not great IMO , did like the blue yellow stripes but not so much the green blue one , this is the green blue but worse . Please be a hoax .

I can't see that being genuine just from a "fit" point of view - that's more Thistle hotels era than 32 Red......looks like an Adidas kit we would have worn years ago - way too retro. Get our skin and bone Bielsa squad in that on a breezy day and they'll take off!

:( very disappointing if that is genuine.

I had great hopes for the adidas kit as I've always rated adidas (unlike Nike - whose kits IMO are crap) designed kits above the rest. Although to be fair Kappa have done a pretty good job over the last few seasons.

I was hopeful it would be our best kit since the Admiral/Smiley days !

Exactly! It's like they were going for sergeant's stripes and couldn't remember how to orient them. Ridiculous.
