The English Football League (EFL) has asked Leeds United for their observations amid the spying scandal engulfing the Championship leaders.
Marcelo Bielsa has admitted sending a member of Leeds’ staff to spy on Derby County training ahead of last weekend’s meeting between the clubs.
The Football Association is investigating the incident while Leeds released a statement reminding Bielsa of his responsibilities.
And Leeds have been asked to explain the incident by the EFL, which suggested the club may have broken its regulations.
“The Football Association has also confirmed they are considering the same matter in line with its own rules and the EFL will work with its FA counterparts to ensure that any potential action taken does not prejudice those investigations being undertaken.”
Derby boss Frank Lampard, whose side lost 2-0 at Leeds, has hit out at Bielsa over the incident.
“It wasn’t an apology, it was an admission,” he told reporters. “It wasn’t peeking over a fence, it was on hands and knees with pliers in hand.
“Now it is about how much the League or FA decide they want to stop what happened going forward – or if they don’t. Maybe other clubs will copy it if it is not dealt with.”
