Report: Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores refuses to rule out joining Leeds United

Leeds United East Stand

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has been touted as a possible replacement for Steve Evans at Leeds United.

According to Sky Sports, Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores has refused to rule out moving to Leeds United.

Reports emerged yesterday in the Daily Star suggesting that Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has made Sanchez Flores his first choice to get the job.

The Spanish boss has done a fine job at Watford, and guided them to an FA Cup semi-final as well as mid-table finish in the Premier League.

However, the Hornets board have decided to look elsewhere for next campaign, with Sanchez Flores set to take charge of his last match at the weekend against Sunderland.

The 51-year-old has been tipped to be a potential candidate for the jobs at Everton or Valencia, but according to Sky he is also open to the possibility of a move to Elland Road.

As things stand, Steve Evans remains in charge at Leeds, but his contract is set to expire in the coming weeks.

Cellino is not expected to hand Evans a new deal, as he has failed to be convinced by the former Rotherham United boss.

Evans is amongst the favourites to land the jobs at Peterborough United and Nottingham Forest if he does leave Leeds.
