Leeds owner Massimo Cellino
According to the Yorkshire Post, Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino is interested in bringing Barnsley's Tommy Wright back to the club as an assistant to a foreign manager.
The Whites chose to part company with manager Steve Evans on Tuesday evening, with the Scot leaving Elland Road after just seven months in the job.
Evans was Leeds' longest-serving manager under Cellino, but follows Brian McDermott, David Hockaday, Darko Milanic, Neil Redfearn and Uwe Rosler in being let go by the controversial Italian.
Now looking for the seventh manager in just two years, Leeds need to find a long-term solution, with a host of managers already linked with the job.

Intriguingly though, Cellino could go for another foreign manager despite Milanic's struggles, as the Italian has lined up a former Leeds man to come back to Elland Road to assist a non-British boss.

The former Leeds winger, 50, has been working as an assistant to manager Paul Heckingbottom at Oakwell, and could make a shock return to Elland Road.
It's claimed that if Cellino goes for a foreign boss, he would like Scot Wright - who knows Leeds inside out and would have an instant rapport with the fans - to become assistant manager, in what is an intriguing option for Cellino and Leeds.
