A number of Leeds United fans have reacted with frustration after hearing that majority owner Andrea Radrizzani may be interested in buying Italian club, Palermo.

According to a report by MediaGol (via Leeds Live), club director Sandro Mencucci has recently been in Sicily, on behalf of Radrizzani, to discuss the possibility of buying the Serie C team.

The story explains that a meeting was attended by the chairman of Palermo, Dario Mirri, where early talks took place.
