Steve Evans responds when asked the exact date when his Leeds United contract expires

Leeds United boss Steve Evans' future at Elland Road is currently up in the air.

Steve Evans has confirmed to Radio Yorkshire that his current contract at Leeds United is not due to run out until a considerable amount of time after the season.

Evans’ future at Elland Road is firmly up in the air, with the Daily Mail suggesting that he is heading towards the sack.

Owner Massimo Cellino commented to the Telegraph that Evans had ‘talked too much’ during his time at Leeds.

However, there is growing support for the 53-year-old to land the job on a permanent basis from fans of the Yorkshire club.

Leeds have taken 10 points from the last 12 available to them, and Evans insists that he does want to land the job for the long-term.

“It doesn’t run out until way, way past the season - end of June, middle of July,” he said, when asked at what point his contract actually expires.

“I’ve made it clear that I would love to be the head coach here and if it’s not for me I will shake everyones’ hand and leave in tears.”

Evans has already promised that he will ensure that Leeds are in the play offs next season if he is handed the job.

Evans initially took over from Uwe Rosler with the Yorkshire side battling against relegation, but he has taken them all the way up to 12th in the Championship table this season.

Leeds' last two fixtures this term come against Charlton Athletic and Preston North End.
