San Francisco 49ers: "Market leaders in many respects"

Representatives of the five-time Super Bowl winners will travel to England to discuss ways of maximising commercial revenues in what the Leeds website describes as "an exciting arrangement".

The Championship club's managing director David Haigh said: "This is a strategic partnership and we're looking forward to working closely with the 49ers.

"They are a worldwide brand, and we'll be discussing all aspects of our business; marketing, ticketing, merchandising, and commercial opportunities, and hopefully tapping into and sharing knowledge with them."

Chairman Salah Nooruddin told the club website: "The 49ers are market leaders in many respects, and they are excited to be working with us as we are with them."

Paraag Marathe, chief operating officer of the 49ers, said: "The 49ers are very excited about the prospect of partnering with Leeds United, a club with an international following as well as great history and tradition.

"We look forward to sharing best practices with Leeds United and providing them with our perspective on the sports industry."

Watch Leeds take on Sheffield Wednesday this Saturday, live on Sky Sports 1. Coverage begins at midday.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
