Leeds United will be setting their sights on promotion once more, after failing dismally last season.

And that run of form was compounded under new manager Paul Heckingbottom – whose future is still under mounting speculation.

And one high-profile pundit thinks that Leeds have got no chance of getting into the top-flight next season.

Responding to a fan offering him a bet for charity, £500 that Leeds will go up next season, Collymore replied saying, “Come on pal, there’s charity and there’s lunacy.”

Leeds are currently joint 7th favourites for promotion, along with Norwich and Sheffield Wednesday, at 13/2.
