The club wrote via their website: “The wait is over! Today we unveil adidas’ take on our famous white shirt.
“Leeds United have collected more trophies in white than in any other colour jersey.
“For our first adidas kit, we’ll wear a crisp white shirt that shines under the Elland Road floodlights.
“The soft fabric keeps you dry from the stadium to the street.
“A new journey begins.
“Made from moisture-absorbing fabric to keep you cool when Bielsa Ball is in full flow, an embroidered crest and crew neck-collar look solid on show.
“Three stripes line the shoulders in royal blue, whilst AEROREADY technology helps the players reach their peak and the kit is complete with traditional white shorts and socks.
“So from the streets to the stands, no matter where the game takes you, show your support for this one club city.
“Your Leeds United heroes will wear the shirt with pride, returning to the top-flight for the first time in 16 years, each one a champion.
“With anticipation rising and an exciting campaign ahead, you can order yours on Thursday 20th August.
“The famous white shirt never looked so good.”
Leeds are reportedly on the verge of announcing a new contract for Marcelo Bielsa to guide them into what the club hopes will be a Premier League era.
The Argentine’s contract at their iconic home expired at the end of the campaign, but club chiefs have been desperate for him to stay.
He’s already picked up the nickname ‘El Loco’ and is already a legend in Yorkshire thanks to his high-octane philosophy and wacky personality, as described by talkSPORT.
Former Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford recently told talkSPORT: “He is a phenomenal person. He doesn’t look at football the same way any normal person does.
“He’s obsessed with football, he’s obsessed with tactics, he’s obsessed with getting it right every opportunity he gets.
“He doesn’t leave anything to chance.
“You can see the frustration when somebody doesn’t pay attention to his points.
“He’s got these thoughts in his mind and nobody can tell him anything else – because he’s a genius.”
