For the frst time since 2002, Leeds United's home stadium Elland Road will host England's national team when they face Costa Rica in a friendly on Thursday evening.

As the day arrives, it is also the perfect time for owner Andrea Radrizzani to make a splash, and show to the world what he has been working on at Leeds in recent weeks.

Here is a look at three significant announcements which could take place within 24 hours...

New manager

Marseille's Argentinian head coach Marcelo Bielsa looks on prior to the French L1 football match between Olympique de Marseille and Stade Malherbe de Caen on August 8, 2015 at the...

Leeds are in advanced talks with Marcelo Bielsa over their manager's role, Sky Sports reported earlier this week.

Bielsa was at a conference in Mexico on Tuesday evening and his whereabouts at present are unknown, but the timeframe fits for him to fly to England ahead of an unveiling.

The maverick manager is renowned as the world's most innovative coach and Leeds' pursuit of him has already created headlines around the globe.

Leeds are keen to get a deal done by the end of the week and Thursday is a great time to declare Bielsa as their man.

New striker

Hull City's Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez celebrates scoring his team's third goal during the English Premier League football match between Hull City and Middlesbrough at the KCOM...

The Whites are pursuing the signature of free agent Abel Hernandez, and a deal is reported to be very close.

Hernandez even tweeted on Tuesday that news is close, as if he knew an announcement is around the corner.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has reported Leeds are in advance talks with Hernandez, whose exit from Hull City has already been confirmed.

New kit/sponsorship deal

Andrea Radrizzani, Owner of Leeds United looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Bristol City and Leeds United at Ashton Gate on October 21, 2017 in Bristol, England.

In comparison to a new striker or a new manager, the unveiling of a new kit would seem a bit underwhelming.

Yet it is something fans are clamouring to see, and it could tie in with an announcement on a new sponsorship deal.

Leeds hosting an England game is big news for the city, and Radrizzani managing to lure a big company to announce terms with the club on the same day would be great synergy.
