Massimo Cellino has revealed that six potential buyers have shown interest in buying Leeds United, according to the Express.
The Italian owner did say that one of the potential buyers is a local businessman who is interested in going into business with Cellino – the Italian has already stated that he’d like the buyer to be based in Leeds.
Sky Sports report that Steve Parkin, who previously failed in his attempt buy the club in 2013, is once again a potential buyer. Parkin is a multi-millionaire who owns Clipper Logistics Group .
Parkin has 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.”
Yesterday, supporters group Leeds Fans United still believe that they’re serious contenders to buy the club despite Cellino withdrawing his offer to the fans group last week. Cellino didn’t comment on the withdrawal but accused the fans group of telling “fairytales.”
Cellino bought a 75% stake in the club in April 2014 and has been far from quiet since his arrival, including sacking five managers at Leeds.
Meanwhile, on the pitch, the Yorkshire club currently sit in 15th position in the Sky Bet Championship, having accumulated 19 points from 16 league games.
Steve Evans’ men have won their two previous Championship matches, and finally seem to be showcasing some form of consistency.
