Leeds United's search for a new head coach took a twist on Monday as MK Dons boss Karl Robinson reportedly turned down the role.

SkySports reported that Robinson had held talks with Leeds United's Italian owner Massimo Cellino, but decided ultimately to stick with MK Dons.

Robinson is regarded as one of the game's most promising young managers, but could not help MK Dons avoid relegation to League One last season.

Officially, Steve Evans remains in charge at Leeds United, but his contract is set to expire at the end of June.

The reports do not look good for his future, but Leeds could yet be left deciding he is the best option if their efforts to appoint an alternative continue to be unsuccessful.

Vital time is being spent with the club in a state of limbo heading into the summer, ahead of what promises to be a very challenging season in the Championship next season.
