Leeds United are targeting Real Madrid assistant manager Paul Clement for their currently vacant managerial position according to leeds.vitalfootball.co.uk, a Leeds United fansite.
Clement, who is assistant to Carlo Ancelotti, has recently been linked with West Brom and Brighton. However, it looks like both teams have moved on following Brighton’s appointment of Sami Hyypiä and West Brom’s link with Neil Lennon among others.
The 42-year old has previously worked with Fulham and Chelsea whilst having two spells with the latter from 1996 to 1999 and from 2007 to 2011.
It would be a sign of intention to bring such a big name to the manager’s post at the club following links with former Forest Green manager Dave Hockaday and Reading coach Eamonn Dolan which have angered fans.
An appointment is to be made fairly soon following owner Massimo Cellino’s sale of Cagliari.
Cellino will return to Elland Road this weekend to take up the reigns of the club until an appointment is made.
