Leeds chairman Umbers sends message to Russell Crowe

Leeds United chairman Andrew Umbers insists they're not for sale.

Umbers was reacting to actor Russell Crowe's hints that he may be ready to make a bid.

Umbers was quick to quell any talk of a takeover, saying the current owners have no intention of walking away from Elland Road.

"The club is not for sale, nor do the Cellino family wish to sell and nor have we received any approaches contrary to reports in the press today," Umbers told BBC Sport.

"The ongoing legal discussions between Massimo Cellino and the Football League are being completely misinterpreted.

"Leeds United is currently being successfully restructured, rebuilt, significantly invested in, with care and planning for the longer term with the Cellino family at its heart, for the benefit of its long-suffering and passionate fans, the city and its players and staff."
