“And with Leeds United pushing for promotion from the Championship we could potentially have two Premier League teams here.

“After the success of Chelsea's visit to Perth in July, when more than 55,000 supporters turned out in torrential rain on a Monday night, there is clearly a strong demand for international teams to play in WA.

“This also underlines the need for continued investment in football in WA, both for facilities and content, so we can create a legacy for future generations in WA.”

Fairfax Media has also approached the Football Federation of Australia, Optus Stadium WA Sport Minister Mick Murray and WA Tourism Minister Paul Papalia to confirm the report.
