Report: Neil Redfearn to leave Leeds United

Neil Redfearn

Neil Redfearn will reportedly leave Leeds United in the coming days.

Neil Redfearn will leave Leeds United this summer, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

According to the Yorkshire newspaper, Redfearn and Leeds are discussing a settlement, with the Englishman to leave Elland Road for good in the coming days.

It has been reported that Redfearn’s relationship with club chairman Massimo Cellino has broken down.

Redfearn has been at Leeds since 2009, when he joined the club’s academy staff.

The 50-year-old has taken charge of the Whites’ first team on a temporary basis on three occasions since then.

The former Crystal Palace midfielder ended the 2014-15 campaign as the Leeds head coach, but he was replaced by Uwe Rosler in May.

Redfearn was expected to return to his previous role as the Leeds academy chief following Rosler’s appointment, but it has now been reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post that he will leave Elland Road for good.

Unpopular move?

Redfearn is a hugely popular figure among the Leeds supporters, and his departure is not going to go down well with them.

The Englishman has helped bring through the likes of Lewis Cook, Sam Byram and Alex Mowatt, all of whom played well under him in the first team last season.
