Leeds United favourites to win promotion into Premier League in 2019/20

Leeds United are the bookies' pick to finally win promotion back into the Premier League at the end of next season

Leeds United failed to make it into this season’s Championship play-off final having stumbled against Derby County in their semi-final tie, however the bookmakers have the Whites chalked in as favourites for promotion at the end of 2019/20 following reports that the club are in talks with Qatar Sports Investments with regard to a potential deal. This would allow the oil-rich state to enter the English game for the very first time and it would certainly result in a substantial cash injection into the club.

Reports suggest that Qatar are seeking a controlling stake in the West Yorkshire club although a source close to the leadership at Leeds United said that the club are holding talks with numerous possible investors of which Qatar Sports Investments are just one.

These reports have resulted in Leeds United’s odds on promotion next season being slashed to just 5/2 with BetVictor, meaning that the bookies see them as more likely to lift themselves into the Premier League than newly-relegated trio Huddersfield Town (9/2), Cardiff City (4/1) and Fulham (3/1).
