Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has told Sky Sports News HQ six potential buyers have been in touch with his lawyers.
The Italian this month pulled out of a potential sale to Leeds Fans United but is still open to offers as he fights a second Football League ban.
And Cellino says one of the six interested parties is a Leeds-based businessman who wants to go into partnership with him - and who has tried to buy the club before.
He would not name individuals but Sky Sports News HQ understands Steve Parkin - a local businessman who tried to buy the club back in 2013 - is interested.
Parkin told SSNHQ: "I am a Leeds United fan, what happens to my club is important to me. I keep my business affairs private. That does not mean I am about to buy Leeds United."
Cellino says he is still looking for a serious buyer and claims he would prefer them to be Leeds-based, adding that he believes the club is now in a "financially okay situation".
