Report: 'Bizarre' breakdown in talks between Cellino and Steve Head

The Leeds owner has been creating headlines once again.

There has been a 'bizarre' breakdown in talks between Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino and Norwich City's Steve Head, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Indeed, Head was reportedly expected to be appointed as the Whites' new head of recruitment but wanted to take an immediate holiday.

Cellino, however, felt time was too precious with regards to the transfer market and no longer wanted to appoint Head once he learned of his holiday plans.

In terms of alternatives, the YEP's report states that the Leeds owner has also come to a disagreement with Celtic's David Moss, ruling him out of the running, while Francesco Marroccu is an unwanted choice.
