Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly set to become Leeds United's next manager.
Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has suggested that there is still no time frame on Marcelo Bielsa’s move to Leeds United.
Some reports had suggested that Bielsa had secured a work permit, but Balague refutes the claims.
The Sky Sports pundit claims that Bielsa will not secure his work permit, until he has agreed to take on the Leeds job.
Whites fans had been hoping that the appointment of the Argentine was imminent.
However, Balague suggests that Leeds fans could be kept waiting yet - as there is no guarantee that Bielsa’s arrival at Elland Road will happen in the next few days.
Not true Bielsa has work permit as that will come when/if he signs contract that is now in his brother's hands, a top level lawyer in communication with Leeds. Club very hopeful of things moving positively but no timetable to when confirmation (or the opposite) will take place pic.twitter.com/4kNliLmeIA— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) June 14, 2018
What it is true is that he is consulted on the transfer movements of the club which, whatever eventually happens, is a great way to tease him! #LUFC— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) June 14, 2018
Leeds fans have been excited by the potential appointment of Bielsa, as they feel he could transform their style of play.
Leeds struggled last season, under the guidance of Paul Heckingbottom, but Bielsa would be a much more popular appointment.
If Bielsa does take over at Leeds it is thought that the squad will return from pre-season earlier than originally scheduled, to ensure they are fully adapted to his tactics before the season starts.
