Leeds have promised a rethink over the club's new badge after fans reacted with dismay to the new design revealed to mark their centenary.

The crest, which the club say celebrates "fans at the heart of our identity", depicts a supporter doing the so-called Leeds salute.

Thousands of fans signed a petition calling for it to be scrapped and Leeds managing director Angus Kinnear said that the club will now consult with more supporters before a new badge is adopted in time for their centenary year in 2019.

By yesterday evening the number of signatures on an online petition to scrap the crest had risen to well over 50,000.
