Steve Evans discloses when he’ll return to work, shares transfer discussion with Cellino

Steve Evans’s future at Leeds United is far from certain.

Leeds United manager Steve Evans (R)Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that he plans to return to work on Wednesday.

Evans is in charge of Leeds at the moment, but his current contract runs out at the end of next month and no new deal is in place.

The former Rotherham United manager has revealed that he has yet to hear from club chairman Massimo Cellino regarding his future.

The Scotsman has also disclosed that he has a list of players he wants to sign in the summer transfer window.

“I’m still waiting for the decision for next season from Mr Cellino and the board,” Evans told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “I fully understand they are hectic with a number of things but I would expect to hear very soon.

“I’ll be back to work on Wednesday. There’s still lots to be done because I’m employed by a great club and I must continue to work.”

“We need to help the squad by adding five or six quality players who will know the challenge when they arrive at Elland Road,” added the Leeds head coach.

“I have a pre-season schedule ready to go and I have a list of players. Most I have discussed previously with Mr Cellino and he liked my vision.”

Evans is a good manager, and he did relatively well at Leeds after being appointed the club's head coach in October 2015.

The West Yorkshire outfit failed to finish in the top 10 of the Championship this past season, but the team did show some encouraging signs and got some positive results.

For Leeds to have a good summer and have everything in place for a successful 2016-17 Championship campaign, Evans’s future needs to be sorted soon.
