Representatives of Cagliari president Massimo Cellino's consortium were in Leeds yesterday.

Cellino is competing to buy the fallen English giants.

The Daily Mail says Leeds' prospective Italian owners were getting a tour of the Thorp Arch training ground yesterday as Cellino and his consortium looked to push through their deal for the club.

It all adds to unwanted distraction for manager Brian McDermott who is understood to be increasingly frustrated by the off pitch activities.
