Massimo Cellino's period of disqualification as owner of Leeds has been extended to May 3 by the Football League.

The Italian businessman was barred by the Football League's board from being owner and a director of the Sky Bet Championship club in December after it ruled his conviction for tax evasion was a ''dishonest act''. 

Cellino and Leeds were also hit by a further misconduct charge for failing to supply the Italian court judgement to the Football League when it first became available. 

League officials were forced to apply to the court in Cagliari for the written reasons. 

Those disciplinary proceedings have now resulted in Cellino's extended ban.
