Video analytics have become an integral part of the modern game over the last decade, with many clubs in Europe employing advanced video performance technologies to improve all aspects of their game.

From gathering crucial data about the opposition to gaining further insight about potential signings, these tools have become the norm for most established clubs.

Leeds United seem to be the latest team joining in on the scene after a French video analytical firm, Footovision, confirmed that they have reached a partnership deal with the club on their official Twitter page.

While such a confirmation is yet to be issued from Leeds’ end, the step would represent a wise move considering their recent troubles while trying to scout opposition.

For the uninitiated, a Leeds employee was caught acting suspiciously outside Derby County’s training ground prior to the two sides’ meeting in the Championship last month which caused quite a turmoil in the Championship with many managers, including Derby boss Frank Lampard, openly condemning Marcelo Bielsa and his team for their actions.

While the ‘spygate‘ incident has led to a £200,000 fine by the English Football League, the Peacocks have also experienced somewhat of a rough patch in the Championship and currently find themselves in the third spot after leading the points table for large spells over the campaign, although they do have a game in hand to regain the summit.
