Carlton Palmer has claimed that Leeds’ owners need to share the same vision of a Premier League return if they are to achieve promotion.

The Yorkshire club are historically regarded as one of the top sides in England, but have been exiled from the top flight since their relegation in the 2003/04 season.

The Whites are under new ownership in the shape of Andrea Radrizzani after the Italian recently completed his full takeover from Massimo Cellino in May.

Leeds are desperate for a long awaited Premier League return and will be keen to build on their seventh-placed finish in the Championship last season.

Ex-Whites midfielder Carlton believes that his former side can achieve their goal if they have owners that are striving for the thing.

“I want to see Leeds back where they belong in the Premier League but they need owners who share that vision too,” Palmer wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Cellino was an unpopular owner during his three-year spell at Elland Road and was known for constantly changing his managers, but fans will be hoping the new man will be different.

Radrizzani is currently on the search for a new boss following the resignation of Garry Monk, who impressed last season as the club battled for promotion.

They are taking their time about appointing a new senior man and whoever it is will have a huge task on their hands next season.

In other Leeds news, Monk has explained his decision to quit the club.
