Leeds United are reportedly poised to hold talks with a new consortium regarding the takeover of the club after Massimo Cellino's bid falls into doubt.

Leeds United's owners Gulf Finance House Capital are reportedly prepared to speak to a new consortium regarding a takeover of the club due to the uncertainty over prospective owner Massimo Cellino.

The Championship outfit agreed the sale of a 75% stake in the club to Cellino's company Eleonora Sport Ltd on Friday.

However, following the company's failed attempt to sack manager Brian McDermott, who was reinstated after Leeds's 5-1 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday, the bid has been thrown into doubt.

According to ITV Sport, GFH Capital are poised to hold discussions with Sport Capital, who have teamed up with another British consortium Together Leeds, regarding their bid for the club.

Sport Capital's attempts to buy the Championship outfit fell through last Thursday.
