Oldham Athletic have reportedly denied that Leeds United have made an approach for manager John Sheridan.

Oldham Athletic have denied that Leeds United have made an approach for manager John Sheridan, according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

According to, Sheridan is the favourite to replace Steve Evans as the Leeds head coach with odds of 11/8.

Evans is in charge of Leeds at the moment, but the Scotsman’s current contract runs out in the summer and he has not been offered a new deal yet.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has reported that Oldham have made it clear in statement that they will not welcome an approach for Sheridan this summer.

“We haven’t received an approach and one wouldn’t be welcomed,” The Yorkshire Evening Post quotes Oldham as saying in a statement.

At the time of writing, there was nothing posted about speculation linking Sheridan with a move away on Oldham’s official website or on their official Twitter page.

The statement was probably given to The Yorkshire Evening Post, and it seems that Leeds may not be able to get Sheridan this summer.

The 51-year-old former midfielder played for Leeds in the 1980s and is very popular among the club’s fans.
