Leeds United have released a public statement confirming that they have sold a 75% stake in the club to Eleonora Sport Ltd, a company owned by the family that also owns Serie A outfit Cagliari.
The release reads: "GFH Capital would like to confirm that it has agreed to sell a 75% stake in the club to Eleonora Sport Ltd, a company owned by the Cellino family who have many years experience in football and who plan to invest substantially in the club including the re acquisition of Elland Road.
