Leeds set to confirm McDermott as new manager

Leeds United owners flew in from Dubai to finalise Brian McDermott' appointment yesterday.

McDermott will watch United's Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road tomorrow alongside new No 2 Nigel Gibbs.

Last season the duo guided Reading to the Championship title.

And former Reading manager McDermott will be looking to inspire a late surge at 17th-placed Leeds, who sit just five points above the bottom three after Neil Warnock's exit.
