Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani has written to the Football Association, Premier League and EFL to ask for clarification on the link between Wolves and agent Jorge Mendes.

Radrizzani questioned the legality of the link on Twitter after the Championship leaders beat Leeds 3-0 last Wednesday.

A subsidiary of Wolves owners Fosun has a share in Mendes’ agency and several of his clients are at Molineux.

“I want to understand the rules so I can act like them,” Radrizzani told BBC Sport.
