Blackburn Rovers head coach Gary Bowyer is in the frame to succeed Brian McDermott as manager at Leeds United, according to the Daily Star Sunday.
Bowyer, 42, is in line to take over at Leeds United as they look to replace McDermott who left Elland Road by mutual consent.
Bowyer took Rovers to an 8th place finish in the Championship last season, two points off the Play-Offs after struggling and protests from the supporters targeting the owners and now a similar scenario is in full flow at Leeds.
Massimo Cellino, the new Leeds owner is reportedly wanting a young, ambitious manager and Gary Bowyer fits the description.
Cellino has already started his ownership role by appointing Sheffield Wednesday player Benito Carbone as an advisor. He also tried to lure Gianluca Festa to work with former manager Brian McDermott but that failed to materialise and now Bowyer is front runner to succeed the helm at Leeds.
