Since owner Andrea Radrizzani took over at Leeds last year, the club have formed partnerships with clubs in Spain and Belgium.

These have come through Qatar's Aspire Academy, where Leeds director Ivan Bravo is a director, with Leeds partnering with Cultural Leonesa and Eupen.

Sweden would be a logical place for Leeds to grow links, with the club boasting strong Scandinavian support.

They have also got two Swedes in their first team squad, Pontus Jansson and Pawel Cibicki, and took two Swedish youngsters on trial in mid-January.
