Leeds United have confirmed that former chairman Ken Bates has left the club after ceasing his role as President.

In a statement on the club’s website, managing director David Haigh said: “Mr Bates will now no longer have any role within the football club.”

Ex-Chelsea owner Bates, 81, became club president on 30 June, having remained chairman after the sale to Middle East-based private equity group GFH Capital.
