The editor of the Yorkshire Post, James Mitchinson has tweeted a copy of tomorrow’s Yorkshire Post with a strictly embargoed sports story in the top right-hand corner of the paper which has started to get Leeds United fans wondering what it is.

This has fuelled widespread speculation that Leeds United could be set to name their long-term managerial target Marcelo Bielsa as the new manager of the Championship club. Although there are a number of other possibilities, this seems to be the most likely result given the fact that the Argentinian had reportedly agreed on a financial deal with the West Yorkshire side. With the paper embargoed, it’s likely to be a very big deal though.

Fans are also wondering whether Bielsa’s announcement will be the case though, with some fans wondering whether it was anything even related to Bielsa at all:

Stephen thinks it’s the real deal:

We’ll find out in the morning whether Bielsa is, or isn’t happening at least as part of this announcement, but this next few days are going to be tense for Leeds United fans – and most likely very exciting.
