The Leeds owner has sent a message to the club's supporters.

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has revealed he is working 20 hours a day to fix 'a number of things' at Elland Road, according to the club's official website.

Indeed, the Italian sent a message to the club's supporters, promising 'answers' soon.

First, though, Cellino insists he has several issues to address in Yorkshire to ensure Leeds are ready to compete ahead of next season.

He said: "There are a number of things to be fixed and I have been working 20-hour days to try and do that. "The fans want answers, I understand that.

"We need to be ready for the new season and we cannot afford to get left behind during the first weeks. I want to make sure that we are ready to give the fans the season they deserve.

"For now, I can't answer many questions while I work things out but I can promise that I will speak very soon to answer the questions that have been asked."

It's been a busy period for Cellino since the Italian returned to Leeds for the first time since his Football League ban.

Reports suggest his role in the sale of Ross McCormack is being investigated, as well as the loan signing of Brazilian youngster Adryan.

Leeds, too, have been tipped to make a move for one of Celtic's senior members of staff for the sporting director role at Elland Road, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

A lot could be riding on the 'answers' Cellino has to provide fans, then, and one thing's for sure - as it always is with Leeds - there will be plenty to discuss in the coming days...
