Neil Redfearn reportedly ruled out of York City job; will remain at Leeds

Leeds United academy boss Neil Redfearn has reportedly been ruled out of the York City job.

Neil Redfearn will remain at Leeds United, after being ruled out of the York City job, according to BBC Radio York

Redfearn was instilled as one of the bookies' favourites to take over at York, but it seems that he will continue with his job at the Whites.

Redfearn's stock had risen after an impressive spell as caretaker boss at Elland Road and it led to York reportedly being interested.

However, the Minstermen appear to be looking elsewhere leaving Redfearn to continue as head of the club's academy.

It is sure to be pleasing news for Leeds supporters, who value Redfearn highly. Indeed, he has been touted as a future manager of the Elland Road outfit, after his last temporary spell in charge.

Redfearn collected 10 points from the 12 available to him before he was replaced by Darko Milanic. 

York, meanwhile, are still looking elsewhere for their new boss after parting with Nigel Worthington this week and club communication's manager Sophie Hicks told Sky Sports that an appointment will be made soon.

She said: "We spoke to some people (on Monday) and talks will continue (on Tuesday).

"We're hoping to bring the new manager in before this weekend's game against Shrewsbury.

"We've been encouraged by the number of people who have applied for the job, the calibre is very good.

"Whoever it is has to be right for us. They need the relevant experience in this league, they have to be straightforward, hard-working and able to build a good relationship with us."
