Brian McDermott is predicting some fun times for Leeds United under Massimo Cellino – and says life will never be dull under him.

McDermott is determined to be part of Cellino’s brave new world at United and feels that exciting times lie ahead for the club under the Italian.

He said: “I’m very pleased for the fans and club that Massimo is here because I didn’t know where this was going. It looks like light at the end of the tunnel.

“It’s been really worrying. It certainly won’t be dull with this man. He likes a bit of fun and we’ll see what happens.

“We had a three-hour chat on Thursday. He came to the training ground, we spoke about things and he texted me on Friday night to wish me well. I’m pleased he’s here.

“He’s a strong-minded man and he knows his own mind. I’ve been on a really tough run of results and you can say there are mitigating circumstances and there are. But this is a new beginning now. It could be really exciting times.”

Meanwhile, Gulf Finance House have confirmed to the Bahrain Bourse that the sale of the club to Eleonora Sport Limited is now complete.

In a stock exchange statement, GFH said it “expects positive impact on its financial position in the short and medium term”.
