Leeds United may face a battle to hang onto Neil Redfearn.

It has not taken long for Neil Redfearn's stint as Leeds caretaker manager to see him linked with a new job.

Redfearn is being touted for the vacant manager's position at York City, the BBC have reported.

Redfearn has past connections with York City, previously working as their youth team coach, and even a spell as caretaker manager in 2008.

He led Leeds to three wins in four games in the Championship earlier this season, and has reverted to his previous role as academy manager and head of coaching.

He stated only last week that he would want to be a full time manager at one stage, and any approach from the League Two club will be a test of his investment in Leeds' current project, which so far has not been doubted.
