Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has explained to The Daily Star what needs to be done in the summer in order to have a successful 2016-17 campaign.

Evans is in charge of Leeds at the moment, but the Scotsman’s current contract with the West Yorkshire outfit runs out at the end of next month.

The Whites failed to finish in the top 10 of the Championship this past season, but they will be expected to at least push for the playoffs during the 2016-17 campaign.

Former Rotherham United manager Evans has explained what needs to be done in the summer in order for Leeds to have a successful 2016-17 campaign.

Evans has also revealed that he has already presented his plan to club chairman Massimo Cellino.

“In my opinion, for the team to be successful next season the squad needs significantly strengthened in many key departments, this alongside ensuring our brightest young talents are secured for some years,” Evans told The Daily Star.

“Anyone not thinking that does not understand the challenge ahead. I presented these views to Mr Cellino just prior to the end of the season.”

Evans has been in charge of Leeds since October 2015, and he has done a decent job at Elland Road. Cellino should put his faith in the Scotsman and back him in the summer transfer window.

Leeds are one of the biggest clubs of England, but they have not featured in the Premier League since 2004 and has become also-rans in the Championship over the past few seasons.
