Leeds United are planning to build a new “world-class” training facility on the site of a former inner-city school, as reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post.
The Whites currently train at Thorp Arch, which was opened in 1994.
However, the Championship outfit are keen to put together a new facility on the grounds of Matthew Murray High School in Holbeck, which closed in 2006.
The Yorkshire Evening Post has reported that a decision on the land will be made on September 18.
As expected, the news has been greeted well by the Leeds fans on social media, with a number pleased to learn of their club’s plans.

It remains to be seen whether the Whites can launch another challenge for promotion this season, and ultimately secure a return to the top flight.
However, building a new training facility would be a huge step in the right direction for the club’s future.
While the general reaction has been good, as seen below, one supporter has questioned what would happen to the existing facility:
