A lot of Leeds United fans have flocked to a post from their club which confirms that the San Francisco 49ers have increased their stake in the club to 37%.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

There is a link to the Whites’ website included in the post, which has further details on the new investment at Elland Road.

This new investment in Leeds will also see the NFL team’s president Paraag Marathe become the vice-chairman of the Whites.

This post has drawn the attention of these Leeds fans who are buzzing.

Excellent news but we won’t get DePaul, I hope I’m wrong but hes going to a big Italian club. Pulgar might be more realistic or the 2 derby teens and the Wigan lad. We have spent big & the stadium needs work. Yes we need another cm. But hopefully Foreshaw can be that or a loanee.”

Many other Whites fans have used this post as a way to beg for their club to sign Rodrigo De Paul, who they have been linked with buying this month.

The article on the website also includes some quotes from Andrea Radrizzani, who claims that this partnership will help the club to “grow and develop into the team our supporters deserve.”

It is said that this deal will increase the value of the club up to around £250m and the news has clearly delighted many Whites fans.
