Report provides definitive update on whether Leeds United boss Steve Evans will be next Peterborough United manager

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United boss Steve Evans was once odds-on to be Peterborough United's next manager.

According to the Peterborough Evening Telegraph, Leeds United boss Steve Evans has seemingly ruled himself out of becoming Peterborough United’s next manager.

Evans was once the odds-on favourite to land the job at the ABAX Stadium, following the sacking of Graham Westley.

Posh have announced that they will be holding a press conference next Monday, where it is widely expected that the identify of their next manager will be revealed.

However, Evans has confirmed to the Peterborough Telegraph that he will not be in attendance at the press conference.

The 53-year-old was touted as a potential candidate to takeover at the League One side, as he has a good relationship with chairman Darragh MaAnthony and lives in the area.

But the latest report appears to end Evans’ chances of getting the job at Peterborough, with Grant McCann the most likely man to be put in charge.

McCann has won both his matches in caretaker charge since taking over from Westley.

Evans, meanwhile, continues as Leeds manager as things stand - but he is widely expected to depart the Yorkshire club when his contract expires in the coming weeks.
