Leeds have announced Paul Heckingbottom as their new head coach, joining on an 18-month deal from Barnsley.
The 40-year-old, who had been in charge at Oakwell since February 2016, agreed new terms with the Tykes on Friday.
But Heckingbottom has swapped that rolling contract for an 18-month deal with their Yorkshire rivals to replace Thomas Christiansen.
A Leeds statement read: "Leeds United are delighted to confirm the appointment of Paul Heckingbottom as new head coach of the club.
"The 40-year-old has signed a contract running until the summer of 2019 and succeeds Thomas Christiansen who left Leeds United on Sunday."
