Ahead of their long-awaited return to the Premier League, Leeds United have revealed their new away kit for the 2020/21 season.

Marcelo Bielsa's side finally clawed their way back to the top flight by winning the Championship title this year, earning fans the chance to see Leeds in the Premier League for the first time since the 2003/04 campaign.

To mark the occasion, Leeds have released an all-new away kit which takes inspiration from the shirt worn by the legendary Howard Wilkinson's side between 1994 and 1996.

It's one of the club's most famous old strips, evoking memories such as Tony Yeboah's famous strike against West Ham United on the opening day of the 1995/96 season. As a tribute to iconic moments like that, Leeds have brought back stripes on their shirt.

Part of the first adidas kit ever designed for Leeds, the stripes are a combination of dark blue and green and has been designed to be wearable throughout the year, not just when following Bielsa's side across the country.

With a vintage high collar and high cuffed sleeves, the shirt brings a modern twist to an old favourite at Elland Road.

We've already seen Leeds in action in the new home shirt, which was debuted in the pre-season defeat to Stoke City earlier in the week, and the away strip surely won't be far behind.

The first time the new away kit will be on show in competitive action will actually be on the opening day of the Premier League season, when Leeds will travel to Anfield to face none other than defending champions Liverpool.

In preparation of the new campaign, Bielsa has already splashed the cash to sign forward Rodrigo Moreno from Valencia and centre-back Robin Kock from Freiburg, with Hélder Costa's loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers also being made permanent.

Udinese midfielder Rodrigo De Paul is next on the manager's wish list, with talks over a £30m move for the Argentine already underway.
