Andrea Radrizzani has thanked Leeds fans for their greetings after he completed a 50 per cent takeover of the club on Wednesday.

Current owner Massimo Cellino sold his stake in the club to the 42-year-old businessman in the week following months of speculation.

It has seemingly come at the right time for the Yorkshire giants with the January window just opening while Leeds battle for promotion in the league.

Radrizzani has received a great reception from supporters and the social media user thanked fans on his personal Twitter account before saying he will see them soon at Elland Road.

Leeds are currently sat in fifth place in the Championship with five points separating them from Derby in seventh.

The club has a number of loan stars they will be keen to tie up to permanent deals, including Pontus Jansson, Kyle Bartley and Pablo Hernandez.

Fans will now be hoping that the inclusion of Radrizzani will see more money come into the club as they look to push onto the next level.

The Yorkshire giants have endured a number of tough years since their relegation from the Premier League in 2004 which has even seem them drop down to the third tier.

However, they now appear to be moving in the right direction under Garry Monk and it is hopeful that Radrizzani can help them progress.
