McDermott set to be named Leeds boss

Leeds United are set to name Brian McDermott as their new manager a month after he was sacked by Reading.

McDermott, 52, is in advanced talks about taking over at Elland Road after previous incumbent Neil Warnock left the club on April 1 with the club's hopes of reaching the play-offs all but over.

The club are currently 17th in the Championship, 10 points off the play-offs and just five points above the relegation zone with five matches remaining.

McDermott led Reading up to the Premier League as winners of the Championship last season, but left the club on March 12 with the Royals having spent the whole campaign in the lower reaches of the top flight. He was replaced by former Southampton boss Nigel Adkins.

Leeds' next match is the Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road, where victory for either side would greatly aid their prospects of avoiding dropping back into League One.
