Sheffield Wednesday takeover delayed

Sheffield Wednesday says planned takeover of the club by Hafiz Mammadow has been delayed. It's apparently due to other business interests of Mr Mammadow. However, the club says it hopes it will soon be in a position to complete the regulatory requirements set by the Football League.

Milan Mandaric and Hafiz Mammadov met in London on Friday evening to discuss the takeover process and say they want to complete the sale as soon as possible.

I fully appreciate the frustration of our supporters, we all want to see a quick completion so we are in the best shape possible for the start of the new season. Despite the delay, I am still committed to fully supporting Stuart Gray in his preparations and this has been demonstrated by the permanent signings of Keiren Westwood and Sam Hutchinson along with the contract extensions agreed with Chris Kirkland, Glenn Loovens and Jose Semedo. I have been kept fully informed by Mr Mammadov’s advisors during the process and Friday’s meeting was very constructive. I continue to believe that he will be a wonderful custodian for this great club and I am very excited at his plans for the future.”

101 days of Cellino at Leeds

It is 101 days since controversial Italian Massimo Cellino took over at Leeds United - and it certainly hasn't been dull!

He has sacked manager Brian McDermott, appointed a little-known replacement, lost a star player and captain..and started raiding the Italian transfer market to build a new team; and he's promised to get rid of the club's Thorp Arch training base, and buy back Elland Road.

He has been talking about all that - and more - in an exclusive TV interview for Calendar.

The Italian reiterated that he was reluctant to sell the Scot, who was the Championship's top scorer last season.

He told ITV Calendar that the club did not need to sell and it hurt him to sell to a league rival, rather than a higher division club:
