Leeds buy out deal near

Share/Save

Leeds United co-owner Andrea Radrizzani is negotiating to buy out the 50 per cent share of the club held by Massimo Cellino.  He had an option to buy the shares at the end of the season.

Cellino has been a controversial figure at Elland Road and has been the subject of various bans by the football authorities.   His replacement would give the club some much needed stability.

Leeds continue to punch below their weight, having failed to make the play offs this season.  However, with the right leadership and investment they should be realise their potential as a club located in a regional capital and secure promotion to the Premier League.
