The Elland Road club plan to wear the strip - unveiled this morning - at The Hawthorns on Saturday with both their home and away kits likely to clash with West Brom’s dark blue and white stripes.

Leeds have a traditional all-white home shirt this season and a dark blue away kit but a new yellow shirt, blue shorts and yellow socks combination - in keeping with their traditional away colours - will avoid any confusion against Albion.

United and West Brom are set to meet in a televised kick-off at 5.30pm on Saturday, a key fixture between two sides who are competing for automatic promotion.
