Report: Uwe Rosler the new favourite to become Leeds United manager

Elland Road

Leeds United seem set to part ways with Neil Redfearn in the near future.

Uwe Rosler is leading the race to become the next Leeds United manager, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

At the moment Neil Redfearn is in charge at Elland Road, but his contract is about to expire and he is not expected to be handed a new deal.

Owner Massimo Cellino has seemingly already started looking at potential successors for Redfearn and Rosler is reportedly now at the top of the list.

The Mail insists that the German boss, who has previously managed the likes of Brentford and Wigan Atheltic, has impressed Cellino and the Italian now wants to see him in the Leeds dugout. 

During Rosler's managerial career so far he has promoted a swift, attacking brand of football and Leeds fans would be hoping that this approach sticks if he does take charge.

Rosler's first task as Leeds manager would be to guide the team to promotion next season, as Cellino has lofty ambitions.

The Italian owner has already proven his trigger-happy nature and Rosler would need to have a big immediate impression to keep his job.
