Son Of Revie To Make Move?

Last updated : 13 May 2007 By Kevin Markey
The son of legendary Whites boss Don Revie announced his interest last week in heading a consortium to take control at Elland Road and has been discussing finance with a number of backers, including the wealthy Maktoum family, who rule Dubai.

Revie now plans to see Bates to discuss the next move. He said: "It is time to sit down with Ken Bates, to push this thing further and see what he wants. I intend to ring him on Monday and arrange a meeting to find out what the story is. I know Ken and I quite like him. It's always best to deal with him face to face and be up front about it.

"I've been staggered by the reaction of Leeds fans to my interest in taking the club back where we belong. I've always said they are the most passionate fans in the country and they've proved me right."

Businessman Revie, 52, runs the successful Soccerex company, which puts on conventions and forums for the football industry.

Last week, Leeds United's World Cup winner Jack Charlton was present at a one-day conference put on by Soccerex at Wembley.
