Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has been quoted in the Yorkshire Evening Post suggesting everything is in place for him to sign a new contract with the club.
Redfearn has done a brilliant job transforming the form of the side over the second half of the season after he was appointed permanent manager by Massimo Cellino at the back end of last year.
It seems like a no brainer and the boss has hinted that he’s been given indications by the club that he will be the man who stays in charge.
“All the talks I’ve had and all the signs are that I’m going to be here next season,” he said.
“The club have asked me to plan pre-season, they want me to draw lists (of transfer targets) up so all the signs are there.”
“I want to be here. I want to take it forward and I want to take it on. The lads are buying into what we’re doing.”
Redfearn’s current deal is a rolling contract, which will be reviewed at the end of each season if the club don’t change the finer details of the agreement.
He’s passed this season’s test with flying colours and deserves a pat on the back for the way he’s motivated the side, as Leeds effectively have nothing to play for.
They are safe from the drop and too far away from the top six to have any real impact on things, which can sometimes make it difficult for a manager to motivate his squad.
However, Redfearn has done well and has the perfect balance between youth and experience in his team at the moment.
It’s now key he is backed with the list of players he draws up and pushes the club towards a promotion place in the next campaign.
