CONFIRMED: Leeds United have appointed Neil Redfearn as their new head coach

Leeds have appointed Neil Redfearn as their new head coach.

Leeds United have confirmed the appointment of Neil Redfearn as the club's new head coach.

The 49-year-old previously took caretaker charge at Elland Road and won 10 points from a possible 12 in the Championship earlier this season.

Interestingly, Redfearn has signed a 12-month rolling contract and has the option of a further year after that - or returning to the academy.

Redfearn's first game as permanent head coach will be at Cardiff City later this afternoon.

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino recently sacked Darko Milanic after just 32 days in charge - and Redfearn had been the overwhelming favourite to succeed him from the off.

The 49-year-old first moved to Elland Road as Under-18 boss in 2009.

Redfearn takes charge of Leeds with the Yorkshire side sitting in 18th in the Championship table.
