PICTURE: Leeds United fans attempt to stop Cellino leaving Elland Road

The events at Leeds United have taken a dramatic new turn.

The extraordinary turn of events at Leeds United on Deadline Day has taken a new twist.

After manager Brian McDermott's sacking at 8pm, discontent has been building regarding events at the club, with fans unhappy at the uncertain direction the club is taking.

The club is in the midst of a takeover, with Italian businessman Massimo Cellino reported by The BBC to be closing on a 75 per cent stake in the club.

He was at Elland Road this evening, and a small number of fans gathered at the ground, reportedly demanding to speak with the owner and attempting to block his exit, as confirmed by Sunday Times writer Duncan Castles. A photo of the events can be seen above.

The game this weekend against Huddersfield promises to be an emotive fixture - the question is, will Cellino speak out before then?
