Leeds United must wait until early next week before learning where they will play their Uefa Cup first round, second leg tie against the Yugoslav side Partizan Belgrade. Following a meeting between Leeds chairman Peter Ridsdale, the Football Association, the Foreign Office and Uefa yesterday, it was understood European football's governing body would make a ruling on where Leeds would play the tie. Moscow is still considered as the favoured alternative venue.

Kilmarnock's Uefa Cup first-round game with Kaiserslauten of the German Bundesliga will be shown live on BBC2 Scotland. The Ayrshire club have already banked around pounds 500,000 from selling the rights to the home leg to German television and are now set to benefit from increased exposure from the first match on 16 September.

Jurgen Seedorf, the 18-year-old brother of Real Madrid's Dutch international midfielder Clarence, has been called up to train with the Spanish club's first team. He was drafted in from the youth team on Thursday after several players were selected for weekend international duty.
