Get some decent engine cleaner like Prepsol and clean the motor.
Then start the car and see where you can see where the leak comes from.

why did you change the sump or you taking about the sump gasket

maybe the intermediate shaft seal is leaking

I also second the engine was to do first and there after it would be easier to track down oil leaking problem
