Leeds Tykes will be known as Leeds Carnegie when they return to the Premiership next season.

Leeds have signed what they describe as a "ground-breaking" deal with Leeds Metropolitan University, which has taken a majority 51% stake in the club.

Carnegie is the name of the university's sports department.

Leeds director of rugby Stuart Lancaster said: "I am delighted by the announcement. This is another hugely significant step in our evolution."
