Leeds United are set to announce on Monday the process for supporters to receive season ticket refunds, according to a reliable journalist.
The club have insisted they will honour their promise to partially refund fans’ season tickets for 2016-17 if the side missed out on the play-offs.
Leeds’ hopes of securing a top-six spot were ended a week before the end of their 46-match Championship campaign and ensured they will once again be in the second tier next season.
The Yorkshire giants are now left to foot the bill, which is not known but could potentially reach seven figures.
Fans have been waiting for an update on how to claim the refund and BBC Leeds correspondent Adam Pope took to his personal Twitter account on Monday morning to report that the online process “should be announced by the club today”.
I understand that the online refund process for season ticket holders should be announced by the club today. #lufc

Fans who brought a season ticket before the end of May 2016 will get 25 per cent of their money back as a result.
Leeds will now start the process of sending forms to season ticket holders who qualify for the refund and have also extended the deadline for supporters to claim their money back.
There are a number of other key issues facing the club this weeks, including the latest on Andrea Radrizzani’s full takeover, the future of manager Garry Monk and the announcement of the retained players list for next season.
In other Leeds United transfer news, it has sensationally emerged that Radrizzani’s takeover of the club is under major threat in what is a shattering blow.
