Leeds United managerial candidate John Sheridan takes Notts County job

Oldham Athletic manager John Sheridan

Leeds will have to scratch another name from their apparent list.

Leeds United are seemingly on the hunt for a new manager but are certainly not having much luck.

Massimo Cellino has already been rejected by MK Dons boss Karl Robinson. Ivan Juric has bequeathed himself to Genoa whilst Beppe Iachini took over at Udinese.

It seemed as though Leeds had honed in on Darrell Clarke – with the Bristol Rovers man clearly in the sights of Leeds’ controversial owner.

But he signed a new three-year-deal at Bristol Rovers earlier today to end speculation.

With Clarke deciding to stay where he is the bookies soon had former Leeds player and Oldham Athletic boss John Sheridan back in the race to take the club forward.

He was linked earlier this month with some suggestions Leeds were already in touch with the cult Elland Road hero – something Oldham later denied and discouraged, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

So perhaps Sheridan is now the man for the job?

Apparently not, as Sheridan has taken on the job at League Two side Notts County this afternoon.

The managerial candidates for the job at Leeds United are dropping like flies at the moment – with two out of the running in the space of a few hours today.

Maybe Massimo should just stick with Steve Evans after all.
