Report: Nottingham Forest have already made an approach to Leeds boss Steve Evans

Nottingham Forest are reportedly keen on Leeds manager Steve Evans.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Nottingham Forest have approached Leeds United boss Steve Evans about becoming their new manager this summer.

Forest parted ways with manager Dougie Freedman in March after a poor run of form, and they are currently being managed by Paul Williams on an interim basis.

Saturday's 3-1 win at Fulham was Forest's first victory since 8th of March, and it's clear that things need to change at the City Ground for the club to move forward again - and owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi needs to find a manager and stick with him, rather than the constant chopping and changing.

Now, the Yorkshire Evening Post report that Forest actually made an approach to Leeds United manager Steve Evans shortly after Easter weekend, with the hope of appointing him as their new boss this summer.

Evans, 53, became Leeds manager back in October following the departure of Uwe Rosler, and now has the club in the top half of the Championship table after a four-game unbeaten run.

The former Rotherham United manager is out of contract at the end of the season, and there is so far little sign of an extension for him as Leeds' volatile chairman Massimo Cellino plots his next move.

If he does let Evans go, it doesn't appear that he'll be short of offers, with Forest believed to be keen on appointing him - even though they may have to wait for Leeds to make a decision on his future first.

Do you think Evans would be a good appointment for Forest?
