Report: Steve Evans poised to make first Leeds addition - his brother

Elland Road Revie Stand

Gee Evans looks set to link up with brother Steve at Leeds United, according to reports.

According to The Sun, Leeds United boss Steve Evans is poised to bring in his brother Gee to help him at Elland Road, raiding former club Rotherham in the process.

Evans, 52, became Leeds manager on Monday following the departure of Uwe Rosler, and has started his reign with two 1-1 draws against Fulham and Bolton Wanderers.

The Scot, who left Rotherham United last month, wasn't exactly a popular choice amongst Leeds fans, but Evans is now looking to mould the Leeds setup in to his own - despite only being contracted until the end of the season.

Now, The Sun report that Evans is set to make his first move behind the scenes, with a deal for his brother Gee Evans in the pipeline.

Gee worked with his brother Steve at Boston United, Crawley Town and with his current club Rotherham United, where he works as chief scout.

Martyn Glover is already in place at Leeds as head of recruitment, but it seems that Evans is keen to bring in another member of staff to help him in the transfer market, in what is certainly an intriguing move.

Bringing in somebody he knows as well as his own brother is a move which should help Evans adjust to life at Elland Road, whilst Gee clearly played a big part in Rotherham's rise from League Two to the Championship, scouting a number of players who helped achieve successive promotions.

Manager Evans will want some additions after two successive draws, and it seems that he wants his brother to be the man to find the necessary players as he looks to reunite with Gee at Elland Road.
