The 35-year-old is out of contract at Elland Road and despite a reasonably strong end to the season, is widely expected to leave the Whites imminently.

He will become the sixth manager to lose his job under unpopular owner Massimo Cellino, who has garnered a reputation for his ruthless changes on the managerial front.

While more left-field suggestions such as Fabio Cannavaro and Walter Zenga had been mooted, it is now understood the club are closing in on Robinson.

The 35-year old has largely been commended for the job he has done in Milton Keynes, though was unable to keep them in the Championship this season as they slid back into League One.

Contact between the two parties is believed to have been made, though no official deal is yet in place with the Yorkshire giants.

Robinson is likely to be the seventh manger of the Cellino era as the club bid to improve on another frustrating season in the second tier.

Will Robinson be a success with Leeds? Is it a downgrade from Evans? Let us know below!
