Leeds announce record-breaking five-year deal with Adidas
The German sportswear giants will become the club's official kit partner from next season for the first time in their history. This surely is a major coup for the Whites, who, for the last sixteen years have had Diadora, Admiral, Macron and of course Kappa to assemble their kits. Leeds United chief executive Angus Kinnear said...
We are excited adidas has become our official kit partner. We’re looking forward to our return to the Premier League with anticipation next season and partnering with adidas, who are one of the most recognisable names in sport, represents a new beginning for the club. At Leeds United we continue to grow on and off the pitch and this record-breaking deal is another important step for the club.
Meslier confirms three year deal
Illan Meslier has given an interview with French media outlet Quest in which he reveals that he “will sign Thursday for three years with Leeds.” The 20 year old shot stopper has been in fine form since Bielsa threw him in at the deep end following an eight game ban for former first team keeper Kiko Casilla. With the young Frenchman between the sticks, the Whites has won six, drawn one, and lost one. Leeds have activated the clause with Ligue 2 side Lorient setting the wheels in motion to make Mesliers signing permanent with a fee pre agreed around £6m.
