Midfielder Adam Forshaw had some frank words for the Leeds United squad following Wednesday night's 3-0 home defeat to league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers. Not legal and fair [to] let one team owned by a fund whom has shares in the biggest players agency with evident benefits [top European clubs giving players with options to buy].

Nearly immediately after his side's loss at Elland Road, Radrizzani suggested on Twitter the Championship was no longer a fair competition due to the close links Wolves' owners, Fosun International, have with super-agent Jorge Mendes.

Wolves' connections to agent Jorge Mendes will be dealt with appropriately by the English Football League, it is understood.

The EFL says it is aware of concerns that have been raised and will deal with them appropriately.

An as-yet unnamed rival Championship club is reported to have drafted a letter outlining concerns about Mendes to the EFL and the matter is due to be discussed at an EFL board meeting on Thursday.

"It should be noted that the club was explicitly informed in July 2016 of all the requirements it was expected to meet as part of the change of control, and appropriate arrangements were put in place to ensure compliance".

After facing a humiliating defeat in the opening game against Sri Lanka , the team will try hard to return on the winning track. Chasing a below par total of 140, skipper Rohit Sharma fell cheaply once again as he was bowled by Mustafizur Rahman for 17.

Cooper hobbled off following an impact injury in the 36th minute of Wednesday night's clash at Elland Road with the skipper replaced by Everton loanee Matthew Pennington as Gaetano Berardi took the captain's arm band.

Wolves boss Nuno was quick to defend his club in light of Radrizzani's remarks, insisting they "compete fairly".

Strong words from a potential future captain, will we see the improvement at Reading?

"My only focus is on the game. We compete fairly and we show when we win, we deserve it".

Retweeting Radrizzani's post, Holt wrote: "needs saying Andrea".

The club made a pre-tax loss of £23.184million, having previously returned a profit of £5.831million.
