'Take Leeds to the big time' – Fans react to shock report that could unlock huge transfer kitty

Fans have reacted to the shock news that Amanda Staveley and her PCP group could be turning to buy Leeds after her failed takeover of Newcastle.
The Sun claimed earlier that the tycoon and her PCP investment group had turned to Elland Road after Mike Ashley had officially declared their takeover bid for Newcastle over.
Leeds fans don’t know what to make about the news, with some claiming that they’re happy with current owner Andrea Radrizzani, but another saying it could be what Leeds need to get to the big time.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from fans after the news was reported:

However, it was also claimed by Sky Sports that Staveley’s bid of £250million is still on the Newcastle table.
The Times report that Staveley and her PCP group were willing to spend up to £100m on new transfers at Newcastle.
The waters are exceptionally muddy but it could all be manoeuvring behind the scenes, with Ashley keen to drive the price up for his club by playing hardball, and Staveley attempting to call his bluff by putting Leeds into the frame.
However, Leeds might make a very attractive buy at the moment, with unrealised potential if they can get themselves promoted to the Premier League.
Newcastle, by contrast, although a giant club, are in dire straits in the Premier League and there is a real danger that they could be relegated this season, wiping a huge amount of value off the club.
