Leeds United: Letter Received By The Football League Sparks New Controversy
The Mail On Sunday report that there has been another revelation with regards Leeds United's farcical financial situation. Gulf Finance House, which co-owns the club, has been accused of using sanctioned Iranian funds to purchase the club from Ken Bates back in 2012. The letter attached to the tweet below was written to the Football League by David Haigh's Lawyers and claims they can provide information regarding the accusations made.
Haigh, Leed's former managing director , is currently being held in a Dubai jail awaiting trial for the misappropriation of £3m of GFH's money when he used to work for them. He was the man who lead the takeover back in 2012 and would certainly be aware of any foul play that went on.
