Leeds United resolve winding-up order out of court
Leeds United have reportedly settled the winding-up petition they were handed on Friday from former director Melvyn Levi.
The Championship club were presented with the petition by law firm Ford & Warren Solicitors, on behalf of Levi, over unpaid fees of around £150k.
The unpaid fees dated back to Ken Bates’ time in charge of the club.
In December 2012, Bates sold Leeds to GFH Capital before Italian businessman Massimo Cellino bought a majority share in April 2014.
A club statement said: “Mr Levi and Leeds United Football Club Limited are working towards resolving their remaining differences,”
The petition had been set to be heard at Leeds Combined Court on 13 January.
