Agent rubbishes reports Kenny sacked by Leeds

Paddy Kenny's agent has denied reports he's being forced out of Leeds United.

Reports claim that the club's president Massimo Cellino is keen to off-load Kenny because of his suspicion of the number 17. The former Sheffield United keeper was born on May 17.

But Kenny's agent Paul Masterton laughed: "I've no idea where this number 17 stuff came from, but it's complete nonsense as far as we're concerned."

Masterton said he was more concerned about a "doctored" and "mischievous" photograph circulating on social media websites, which shows Kenny clearly overweight.

"We're more bothered about the picture to be honest. It's been massively doctored. Paddy is the same weight now as he was five years ago.

"I was playing golf with him last week and unless he's put four stones on since then somebody somewhere is being mischievous to say the least."
