Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has told a fan on Twitter that Leeds are no longer interested in attacker Marcus Maddison.
Now, the prestigious club are under the ownership of Italian Andrea Radrizzani, but it hasn’t been plain sailing with manager Garry Monk choosing to resign soon after his full takeover.
MacAnthony has used the club’s lack of a manager as one of the reasons why Leeds are no longer eyeing Maddison, while also stating on his personal Twitter account that he doubts Radrizzani even knows who the young attacking midfielder is.

Maddison was a standout star for the English third tier side in the last campaign, as they achieved an 11th placed finish.
The highly-rated attacker managed a fine return of nine goals in 41 matches in League One.
However, it was on the assist front that he truly excelled in as he turned provider on 17 occasions in those outings.
Maddison is also going into the final year of his contract at the Cambridgeshire-based club, while Leeds’ main attentions will be focused on their managerial appointment for now.
In other Leeds transfer news, this 31-year-old has moved from the Premier League to the Championship after reported approach from the Whites.
