The League disqualified Cellino, 57, from becoming owner or a director of the club last week following his recent conviction in a Sardinia court for tax evasion.

Cellino's legal representatives in London, Mishcon de Reya, lodged a formal appeal last week on the grounds that the Italian businessman has appealed against that conviction and remains innocent in Italian law until the appeals process is completed.

The League claims Cellino's conviction bars him from taking control at Elland Road under its owners' and directors' test.

An independent QC heard both sides of the argument in London on Monday and requires more time to consider the case further.
