Leeds want Monk to replace Evans as manager

Former Swansea manager Garry Monk appears to be the man Leeds want to replace Steve Evans.

United announced Evans' protracted departure on Tuesday night, saying they wanted to go in a different direction to the Scot who had claimed he would be given a new deal beyond the end of this month if he kept the club in the Championship.

That contract was not forthcoming, though, and after a three-week wait to learn his fate - a time during which owner Massimo Cellino interviewed other people for his role - he was let go.

Monk is not thought to be one of those Cellino met while Evans was in place - MK Dons' Karl Robinson was one while an approach was made for Bristol Rovers' Darrell Clarke - but he now looks to be the front-runner, with some reports suggesting talks have begun.

Press Association Sport understands Monk is the leading candidate Cellino is now focussing on to replace Evans, with the 37-year-old out of work since leaving Swansea in December last year.

Leeds fans plan to march in protest against Cellino

Leeds fans plan to march in protest against club owner Massimo Cellino through city centre streets before Saturday's home Sky Bet Championship game against Reading.

Fans' group Time To Go Massimo will join other supporters opposed to the Italian's ownership of the club at Leeds City Square before embarking on a march to Elland Road.

"Time To Go Massimo will be marching with fellow fans in protest against the toxic regime that is currently occupying the Leeds United that we hold so dearly to our hearts," the group said in a statement.

"Our march route will take us from City Square and will cover 2.2 miles of ground through Leeds city centre and Holbeck, before we reach the East Stand of Elland Road to tell Mr Cellino to end the farce of his ownership."

The group has placed an advertisement in the sports section of Saturday's Yorkshire Evening Post to promote the march and said it has advertised extensively on social media.

"The protest march has the full support of West Yorkshire Police, who will be there chaperoning the march in its entirety," the group said.
