The owners of Leeds United, GFH Capital, have rejected an offer to take over the club by a consortium led by the club's former defender Lucas Radebe.

Radebe is, according to the BBC, part of a group which is looking to buy a stake in Leeds for £7m and which also includes former director Adam Pearson.


GFH Capital bought Leeds from former chairman Ken Bates last December and the Dubai-based owners have wasted little time in quashing talk that any offer was "credible".

The group said in a statement: "We are watching with a mixture of bemusement and interest the reports suggesting any credible takeover bid has been made.


"No serious approach has been made by any members reportedly concerned."

Leeds currently sit eighth in the Championship table and are striving to win promotion to the Premier League.

Manager Brian McDermott recently praised GFH Capital for rejecting a number of offers for striker Ross McCormack in the summer transfer window.
