Brian McDermott is emerging as favourite for the Leeds United job.

The Sun says he is set to be named the new manager of Leeds United.

The 52-year-old was sacked by Reading on March 12 despite leading the Royals to promotion last season.

And he is close to making a quick return to the game at Elland Road as the replacement for Neil Warnock.

Warnock parted company with Leeds after it became clear the Whites would not reach the play-offs.

McDermott’s first task will be to steer the Yorkshire side clear of relegation danger.
