Since their last premier league game in 2004, they have played 734 EFL games scoring 1,003 goals and have used 268 players in EFL and also had 15 permanent managers.

They have seen seen 28 different clubs win promotion to Premier League

People Share their reactions on twitter.

One said: "Leeds had some barely-believable lows after they "lived the dream" and crashed into relegation 16 years ago; the nightmares are finally over and now they are back"

Another said: "Leeds United back in the Premier League. Fantastic for one of the old giants of the English game. Fans can now celebrate after lean years & tough times recently with the loss of club greats Norman Hunter, Trevor Cherry and Jack Charlton. Brilliant job Marcelo Bielsa & players."

A third said: "Leeds are back in the Premier League. Great news. Not "because they're a big club" but because they've have finally got their act together -- reward for the fans who stuck with them throughout. The fact that they're a really likeable team under Bielsa is a huge, huge bonus."
