Leeds United have avoided a winding-up petition after they agreed terms with Melvyn Levi, the man who issued the order.

In a brief statement on the Club’s Website, Leeds United said,

“The winding up petition presented by Melvyn Levi has today (Wednesday November 12) been dismissed on agreed terms.”

The Whites admitted that they still have remaining differences between themselves and Mr Levi, commenting,

“Mr Levi and Leeds United Football Club Limited are working towards resolving their remaining differences.”

The initial winding-up petition was for unpaid fees thought to be in the region of £150,000 and dating back to when Ken Bates owned the club. Law firm Ford & Warren filed the order on behalf of Mr Levi.

The petition was related to unpaid court fees that the Judge told Leeds to pay for in the 2012 trial.
