Mr Cellino said: "It pains me to make this decision as I have put my heart and soul into this club.

“But what I was subjected to at the Blackburn game left me feeling like I had no other option but to take a step away.

“After the time, effort and emotion I have given to the club to try and enable us to move forward, it hurt me a lot to hear the fans singing what they did on Thursday night.

The fans made it clear they believe I am no longer the best person for this job, and for the first time I am starting to think that they may be correct.

Last night Leeds Fans United told ITV Calendar that it had reached an agreement in principle with Cellino to buy his majority stake in the club.

The group was set up with the aim of achieving supporters' representation on the club's board. Fans are being asked to donate between one hundred and ten thousand pounds to achieve their goal of raising ten million.
