According to The Mirror, Leeds United manager Steve Evans is wanted by Bolton Wanderers - but they don't want to wait long for Massimo Cellino's decision.

The Whites appointed former Rotherham United boss Evans back in October following Uwe Rosler's departure, and he ended the season with Leeds in 13th place in the Championship table.

Whilst fans seem split on the outspoken Scot, he did a decent job at Elland Road, but his future remains up in the air as chairman Massimo Cellino plots his next move.

As reported by BBC Sport, MK Dons boss Karl Robinson rejected the Leeds job on Monday, whilst Bristol Rovers have confirmed that they have received an approach from Leeds for their manager Darrell Clarke.

The writing appears to be on the wall for Evans, but Cellino is yet to official confirm that he is leaving the club - and that could impact Evans' chances of walking into another job.

The Mirror report that Bolton Wanderers, who were relegated from the Championship to League One this season, have been impressed with Evans track record at Crawley, Rotherham and Leeds, and are now keen to open talks with him about becoming their new manager.

However, the Trotters don't want to wait too long, and with Cellino stalling a decision over Evans - whose contract expires on June 30th - the Leeds boss could miss out on the chance to win another job with a Football League club this summer.

Do you think Evans should be kept as Leeds manager?
