The club's managing director David Haigh is heading a consortium hoping to conclude a deal to buy a controlling 75% stake in the club from current owners GFH Capital and a buy-back of Leeds' home ground for the last 94 years is high on their agenda.
Leeds negotiated a buy-back clause when they sold Elland Road for £8million to help ease massive debts in 2004 to Manchester businessman Jacob Adler.
But the cost to do so increases annually and currently stands at £15million.
Annual ground rent, which has also risen year-on-year, costs Leeds £1.4million.
GFH Capital took control of Leeds when they bought 100% of the club's shares from previous owner Ken Bates in December 2012.
But a new group of investors, led by Haigh and understood to include Enterprise Insurance managing director Andrew Flowers, are on the verge of completing a second takeover in a year and are keen to redevelop the stadium.
