Report: Cellino accused of not fulfilling payments - but is '100% sure' of innocence

The Leeds owner reportedly faces fresh allegations once more.

Massimo Cellino faces fresh allegations based on not fulfilling payments in relation to the loan signing of Adryan, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Leeds United owner was reportedly initially under investigation by the Football Association for third-party ownership with regards to the young Brazilian's transfer but has now been accused of owing money.

Indeed, RP4 Football Management claim Leeds have not paid the fees due for Adryan's time at Elland Road. RP4 director Reinaldo Pitta also suggests the Yorkshire club's owner owes him money already from his time at Cagliari.

Cellino, however, responded to the Mirror with the quote: “I will sort it out with the FA because I have done nothing wrong. It’s no problem, I’m sure 100 per cent. If I did something wrong it was because I was not well advised.”

The Italian believes he owes the company nothing as he dealt with Adryan's parent club.

This is the second fresh allegation the Mirror have reported in recent days, with the first alleging Cellino paid a 'backhander' during Ross McCormack's move from Leeds United to Fulham.

Their latest report also references the McCormack story and includes a further response from a once more confident Cellino.

Intriguingly, the Italian on Friday night promised 'answers' for Leeds fans, stating that he is currently working 20 hours a day to fix several ongoing issues at the club.
