Leeds United boss Steve Evans will be pleased to hear that Massimo Cellino is sticking around for now

Massimo Cellino 1

The Italian has put plans to sell the club on hold.

Yesterday saw yet another turn in the Leeds United ownership saga under Massimo Cellino. The Italian had initially stated he would be selling the club to the Leeds Fans United group. He then pulled out of that deal.His next step was to seemingly discuss selling the club to local businessman Steve Parkin. That is no longer the case.

Yesterday it was reported by Sky Sports that Cellino has now performed a U-turn on the matter.

Now it is believed the Italian will wait until next year before selling the club to anybody. This will probably come as bad news for the majority of Leeds fans - who would like to see the back of their controversial owner.

But one man who is likely to be pleased that Cellino is sticking around is Leeds United manager Steve Evans.

It had been reported that Parkin had his eyes on appointing David Moyes as Leeds manager if he purchased the club, leaving the current Leeds man out of work.

At the moment Evans is getting results at Leeds and looks like sticking around for some time under Cellino.

Although, it is of course worth remembering that his Evans' current boss is certainly partial to a sacking himself.
