Brian McDermott is set to be announced as the new Leeds United manager in the next 24 hours.
52-year-old McDermott has been among the bookies favourites for the vacant Whites hot seat ever since Neil Warnock was sacked at the beginning of April.
McDermott guided Reading to Premier League promotion with a 1-0 win against Nottingham Forest after a superb run of 15 wins in 17 games in April 2012.
McDermott was sacked by the Royals on 11 March 2013 following a run of four successive league defeats.
No official confirmation from Leeds United yet, but McDermott’s credentials have made him the most obvious choice all along – he’s a man who can work to an incredibly tight budget with experience of winning the Championship.
