Leeds Utd Owner Set For Meeting Over Elland Road This Month

Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is set to hold a meeting with Elland Road landlord Jacob Adler later this month, as reported by Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The ownership of the stadium has been an issue since it was sold over a decade ago, with various owners promising to make rebuying the stadium a priority.

Gulf Finance House repeatedly referred to buying the stadium as part of their intended plans for the club, but financial issues and general mismanagement stopped that from ever happening.

Cellino spoke about his intention to buy the stadium back from its current owners from the minute he bought the club, but seemed to run into issues.

The Italian had said that he would go to the bank immediately after coming to Leeds, but was hindered by financial problems.

He has also said that some of the money that the club got from the big money sale of Ross McCormack to Fulham would be used to buy back the stadium.
