Leeds United owners GFH Capital are close to buying back the club's Elland Road home, BBC Radio Leeds reports.

It is believed the owners are on the verge of a multi-million pound deal which will see the ground returned to the club after it was sold by the Yorkshire Consortium nine years ago.

The Championship side were forced to sell the ground on a lease back deal in November 2004.

GFH purchased Leeds from Ken Bates in December 2012.

Bates, 81, left his role as the Yorkshire club's president last Friday.
