Report: Football League clubs interested in appointing Redfearn - if he quits Leeds

Neil Redfearn

Three Football League clubs are reportedly interested in appointing Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn this summer.

According to The Sun, Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn could leave Elland Road this summer - and three clubs are already interested in his services.

Redfearn, 49, replaced Darko Milanic as the full-time Leeds boss in November 2014, and having helped nurture a promising crop of Leeds youngsters, he's become a popular figure at Elland Road - despite only having a 34% win percentage.

However, Redfearn's contract will expire this summer, and after the controversial decision to suspend his assistant Steve Thompson, his future is certainly looking uncertain.

The Sun believe that, even though a meeting with president Massimo Cellino is planned, Redfearn is looking to leave Elland Road upon the expiration of that contract.

Should he depart this summer, there is likely to be interest in his services, and The Sun believe that three Football League clubs already have their eye on him.

The first is Leeds' Championship and Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United, who stayed in the division on Tuesday night with a 2-1 win over Reading - but the future of manager Steve Evans is up in the air after that battle with the drop.

The other two teams both sit in League One right now, with Chesterfield possibly looking for a new boss if they lose Paul Cook this summer, and Oldham Athletic - who Redfearn played 62 games for as a player - are also looking for a new long-term manager following Lee Johnson's move to Barnsley.

All three of those teams are reportedly interested in Redfearn if he does leave Leeds this summer - so he may not be out of work for long if he chooses to go.
