Leeds United have apologised to Derby County and issued a statement saying they will remind head coach Marcelo Bielsa of the club’s principles of “integrity and honesty” in the wake of the recent spying revelations.

Police were called to Derby’s training ground ahead of Friday night’s game with Leeds in the Sky Bet Championship amid claims a member of United’s coaching staff was surreptitiously watching the session.

Bielsa subsequently admitted before Leeds beat the Rams 2-0 at Elland Road that he had sent someone to spy on Derby, and the club have now issued a response in which they confirmed they have met with Derby officials.

“Following comments made by Marcelo Bielsa yesterday (Friday) the club will look to work with our head coach and his staff to remind them of the integrity and honesty which are the foundations that Leeds United is built on,” read an official statement from Leeds United.
