Massimo Cellino has revealed that six potential buyers have contacted his representatives to express their interest in buying Leeds.

The Italian owner also said that one of the interested parties is a Leeds-based businessman who is keen to go into partnership with him, having previously attempted to buy the club.

It was also reported that Steve Parkin, multi-millionaire owner of Clipper Logistics Group, is interested in buying Leeds. He previously attempted to buy the Whites in 2013.

He said: “What happens to my club is important to me.

“I keep my business affairs private. That does not mean I am about to buy Leeds.”

Cellino has said he would prefer a buyer to be Leeds-based.
