Leeds United boss Steve Evans shares details of meeting with Massimo Cellino

Steve Evans believes that good news is on the horizon for Leeds United.

Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he has a ‘wonderful’ meeting with Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino earlier this week.

Evans and Cellino sat down for discussions on Monday, and the 53-year-old manager has hinted that good news is on the horizon for his side.

Evans says that Leeds are moving closer to securing his targets for the summer transfer window already, and he has suggested that a big announcement is imminent.

“I know who I want in the summer, and I’m getting nearer who I want now,” Evans said.

“I had a wonderful, wonderful supportive meeting with the president last night. The president is a private man, but there is some wonderful news coming out in the next few days about the finance and where the club is going. And I just need to get my recruitment right.”

Evans has persistently stated that if he is backed in the summer transfer window, then he will guide Leeds to promotion.

Indeed, the former Rotherham United boss has even gone as far as promising he will resign if Leeds are not challenging for the top six next season.

So far Evans has not been able to bring in as many players as he would have liked during his time at Elland Road.

The Whites only made three additions in January, with Toumani Diagouraga, Liam Bridcutt and Mustapha Carayol arriving.

Leeds’ lack of activity in January seems to have left them short of quality, and Evans’ side look destined to finish in a mid-table spot in the Championship this season.
