Steve Evans has told BBC Radio Leeds that he would still stay on at Leeds United, if he was asked.

Evans’ future at Leeds has been heavily speculated about, with his current deal set to expire in the coming weeks.

Leeds are actively looking for a new manager to take charge, while Evans is still at the helm.

The 53-year-old has been in work at Thorp Arch, planning for next season, even though Leeds are known to be looking for a replacement.

But Evans has said that he would still be willing to stay in his current role as Leeds manager, if he is given the opportunity.

He said.“The obvious and simple one-word answer that is ‘yes’ [I would stay on]. Followed by I would now need to have a long conversation. Not about the fact that this football club has spoken to other people, you have to accept that. But I need to establish in the next week or so whether I have a plan going forward for Leeds.”

MK Dons boss Karl Robinson was the first manager to be heavily linked with Leeds, but he rejected the chance to move to the Yorkshire club.

Leeds have now turned their attention to appointing Bristol Rovers boss Darrell Clarke.

Leeds are expected to agree a compensation package for Clarke in the coming days, with the Rovers manager then set to decide whether he wants to manage the Championship club.
