Ledley King fancies Leeds United to seal Premier League promotion

Tottenham Hotspur legend Ledley King believes Leeds United are strong favourites to return to the Premier League, should they maintain their form through the festive period. The west Yorkshire outfit have transformed themselves into frontrunners for promotion under Marcelo Bielsa and they were temporarily at the top of the standings over the weekend before Norwich City leapfrogged them to the summit.

Speaking after the club’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United, King was pleased with the progress made by the club under the guidance of Bielsa and feels the team could return to the top-flight for the first time since 2004 next season, he said: “Leeds were temporarily top of the Championship after their 1-0 win over Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United. Marco Bielsa’s side have looked impressive this season and if the can maintain their form after Christmas, we could be welcoming Leeds back to the Premier League next summer.”
