Redfearn: First thing I'd sort out at Leeds over next two weeks

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has explained what he'd sort it if he was the main man in control at the club.

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn told BBC Radio Leeds that if he were in control of the club, the first thing he’d sort out during the international break would be his contract.

Redfearn hopes his new deal is sorted out before the club’s next league game, as the side continues to do well under his guidance.

“I hope so (contract sorted over the next two weeks). I’ve just got to keep doing what I’m doing, listen that’s up to them. If it were me, I would (sort it out),” said Redfearn.

Redfearn’s current deal is a one-year rolling contract, which is set for review at the end of each season.

At the end of this season, it’s difficult to see where he could be criticised by the club and where a reason not to keep him could develop.

He was tasked with pulling Leeds away from the bottom places in the Championship table when he took over after Darko Milanic and he’s done a superb job to drag the side up the table.

He’s also found a way to get the best out of his younger players and a system, which has allowed the side to secure consistently positive results over the second half of the season.

The team would have been disappointed not to get the better of struggling Blackpool over the weekend but things are still moving in the right direction and this would be a sensible next step.
