Controversial Leeds United co-owner Massimo Cellino is set to reinvest the money he makes from selling the Yorkshire club to buy Serie B side Brescia, according to Italian newspaper Calcio Finanza.

The Elland Road hierarchy is expected to change this summer, with Andrea Radrizzani set to buy out his fellow Italian and take full ownership of the Championship club.

Leeds fans have welcomed the potential deal, with Cellino bringing controversies to the Yorkshire side and failing to provide the platform to get the Whites back to the Premier League.

Radrizzani is expected to inject money into the club, while the supporters are hoping the new man will back Garry Monk with a new long-term contract in coming weeks.

The report suggests that Cellino will spend around £10.5 million to buy a 60 per cent stake in Brescia, who are currently fighting against potential relegation from Italian football’s second tier.

Leeds fans will be concerned at the level of influence that the controversial businessman will have at Elland Road even after selling his share, with rumours stipulating that he could still be kept in an advisory role within in the club.
