Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has reportedly sacked goalkeeper Paddy Kenny.

The Daily Star says Cellino has told new Leeds boss Dave Hockaday not to pick the £10,000-a-week star as his birthday - May 17 - clashes with his least favourite number.

Kenny, who is the second highest-paid player at Elland Road, has been dropped from the squad for their current pre-season tour of the Italian Alps.

Leeds have also completed the signing of Reading goalkeeper Stuart Taylor on a free transfer to cast further doubts on Kenny's future.
