Andrea Radrizzani has vowed on social media to “bring joy” to all Leeds fans following his takeover of the club.

The Whites confirmed on their official website on Tuesday evening that the 42-year-old has purchased the 50 per cent stake from Massimo Cellino.

It now means that he is the full owner of the Yorkshire giants after buying a 50 per cent stake in January and has become the chairman with “immediate effect”.

Radrizzani took to Twitter to celebrate his full ownership of the Championship side and will now be hoping to get them back into the Premier League.

“A very special day… proud to be part of the Leeds United. Will work hard to bring joy to all Leeds fans,” Radrizzani wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Radrizzani will now be able to start plans for next season and has the pressing situation of who will be at the helm, with most supporters hoping that Garry Monk’s deal is extended.

Sky Sports have reported that Monk is likely to be given a 12-month deal to stay as the club excercise an option in his existing deal.

The introduction of Italian businessman Radrizzani does mean that Leeds will be saying goodbye to Cellino, who had a mixed three seasons with the club.

Cellino leaves Elland Road after being involved in a number of controversies and will be remembered for using seven managers during his spell.

Radrizzani will hope to bring some stability now to the English side and they will be striving to get back in the Premier League where they believe they belong.
