Massimo Cellino has been banned for 18 months - effective from February 1, 2017 - for breaking the FA's agent regulationsRead the full story ›
Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has expressed his surprise at a newspaper's claim that he is facing a ban and a fine in relation to the transfer of Ross McCormack to Fulham in 2014.
The Daily Mail reported the Italian would be suspended from football for 18 months and both he and the club would be fined £250,000 after being found guilty of breaching Football Association regulations.
But Cellino once again protested his innocence in a statement released by the club on Wednesday evening.
I am surprised to read the news regarding the FA's intentions to ban and fine me, as well as fine the club. I am not guilty and I will take the right steps to defend myself through the tribunal. I feel that I am guilty of one thing, protecting Leeds United since I took charge of the club.
I ask the players, manager and my staff to continue to work with loyalty and professionalism and to keep fighting for the club everyday on and off the pitch. I am sure that the public in this country and the free press will take the time to look into this case and find the truth.

Leeds United secured a second successive league win to ease the pressure on manager Garry Monk and keep Cardiff in the bottom three of the Championship.
Chris Wood's fourth goal in six games, a 62nd-minute penalty rolled home in confident fashion, and Pablo Hernandez's first Leeds goal eight minutes from time secured a well-merited 2-0 success.
The three points moves Leeds towards the heady heights of mid-table after a fraught start to the season, Monk now having won four of his past six games in all competitions.
Cardiff's campaign, however, is showing little sign of flickering into life with only one victory so far this season.
