Former Crawley Town manager Steve Evans looks set to named as the new Leeds United boss.

News broke this morning that The Whites sacked head coach Uwe Rosler after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at home to league leaders Brighton.

Ex Reds man Evans, who left Rotherham United last month, is understood to be taking training at the club’s Thorp Arch training ground this morning.

Rosler, 46, took charge of the Elland Road side in May and has had just 12 games in charge and seen the club drop to 18th in the Championship without having a home win all season.

Evans, 52, won promotion to the Football League with Crawley and left the following season just before the team was promoted to League One.

Rosler’s departure takes to five the number of head coaches dismissed by owner Massimo Cellino since he bought Leeds in April 2014.

Eighteenth-placed Leeds travel to Fulham on Wednesday.
