Steve Evans comments on Leeds' season ticket offer, claims he's wanted by another club

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds manager Steve Evans claims he is wanted by a rival club.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he thinks the club's season ticket offer adds pressure to the job.

Leeds confirmed on their official website on Tuesday that fans would be refunded on their season tickets if the Whites fail to qualify for next season's play-offs, and whilst there are certain conditions that must be met, it's a huge incentive for fans to buy season tickets and support the club.

Those fans were treated to a third win in a row on Tuesday night, as Evans' men beat Wolverhampton Wanders 2-1 at Elland Road thanks to goals from Sol Bamba and Toumani Diagouraga.

Now up in 11th place in the Championship table, this could be a strong end to the season for Leeds, but questions will still be asked about the future of manager Evans.

The Scot, who replaced Uwe Rosler as manager in October, is now the longest serving manager under Massimo Cellino's reign, but his contract expires at the end of the season.

There has been no clear indication on whether Evans will be handed a new deal or not, and he discussed his future with the club after seeing his side beat Wolves.

Evans told BBC Radio Leeds that he is leaving his contract up to Cellino, but does have interest from other clubs if he does end up leaving Elland Road.

Evans added that whoever is in charge of the club next season will have huge pressure on them thanks to the new season ticket deal, where a top six finish will be expected - but Evans thinks that's well within reach, if he stays with the club.

"I think there's a great chance here next season anyway - I think it just gets greater if I'm here," said Evans. "It takes six or seven months to get to know a group of players, it takes six or seven months to get to know who you want to work with going forward. The pressure here for any head coach next season if going to be massive, because the season ticket alone tells you that the pressure is here. With 30,000 fans every week and flying high in the top six, everyone would want to be here as head coach."

"In terms of contracts, that lies with the president and the board and people like that. They do their job and I do mine, all I can do is keep winning games. I've always said that if I'm not wanted at Leeds United, it would break my heart, but I know I'm already wanted somewhere else, so that's nice," he added.

Do you think Evans should be kept at Leeds?
