Mike Tindall claims he will donate to Leeds Fans United amid takeover talks

Leeds Fans United are hoping to buy Leeds from Massimo Cellino.

Leeds Fans United are hoping to purchase the majority share in Leeds United from Massimo Cellino, Mike Tindall has confirmed to talkSPORT he will donate towards the potential buyout.

When asked if he will back the takeover and donate towards it, Tindall said: “I definitely would do that. Thinking back to when I did go and watch them play, it was always packed and always a joy to watch. It has just been a shambles off the field, as well as on the field. It would be good to get some stability back in there and support the fans.”

Tindall is well known as a Leeds United fan, having been born in Otley, before going on to forge himself a career at the top end of world Rugby.

Despite moving into a different sport, and marrying a member of the British Royal Family, Tindall still holds his love of the Whites close, and is keen to see the fans - like himself - give the club some stability.

This looks as if it will come from the takeover by Leeds Fans United, who appear to be close to holding talks with Cellino concerning the purchase of his majority share percentage.

If LFU do manage to complete the purchase, and take control of their beloved club, there is a hope that stability and a positive mindset will start to take hold at Elland Road.

For far too long the Whites have found themselves struggling to stay afloat, with League One looking more likely than the Premier League, but if LFU do take charge, there is hope that the sleeping giants can start to move forward once again.
