Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has said he will step down from his position to comply with the football leagues request.
Cellino has been ordered to do so after the FL declared he had failed the owners and directors test after an Italian court ruling confirmed he was guilt of fraud, relating to a case in his homeland earlier this year.
Cellino though did say he would be appealing the decision, and was only stepping down to stop himself and the club receiving further sanctions.
As things stand, he would be eligible to take over again in March when his conviction is classed as spent.
No news yet who will take over, but one of his sons would be the obvious choice in the interim.
