Leeds United: Whites sign new kit deal with Macron

Leeds United have announced a new six-year deal with kit manufacturers Macron.

The Italian firm have agreed to extend a partnership which began in early 2008, offering what Leeds chairman Ken Bates said were "much better terms which reflect out success".

United claimed to have secured the biggest kit contract outside the Premier League when Macron first agreed to supply strips and training kit for the club's first team, reserves and academy, despite the fact that the club were in League One at the time.

A lengthy extension was announced yesterday, and writing in his programme notes ahead of last night's Championship clash with Leicester City, Bates said: "After three happy years of working together, mostly in the depths of League One, we tied the knot for another six years on much better terms which reflect our success to date.

"It is always a sign of a good working relationship when a club and a commercial partner extend their contract."
