Leeds have released goalkeeping coach Andy Leaning from their backroom staff

Leeds United goalkeeping coach Andy Leaning has left the Championship club, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The newspaper also reported that the former York City and Sheffield United shot-stopper is in the process of sorting a settlement with Leeds, who initially hired him in 2012 to assist then-caretaker coach Neil Redfearn in the wake of Simon Grayson’s sacking as manager.

Leaning was retained by subsequent bosses Neil Warnock and Brian McDermott, but will now not be on the backroom staff of newly-appointed head coach Dave Hockaday, with academy ‘keeping coach Neil Sullivan looking after Marco Silvestri, Stuart Taylor and Alex Cairns on the Yorkshire outfit’s pre-season tour of Italy.

The 51-year-old’s departure is the latest significant development between the sticks for Leeds; Silvestri and Taylor have been signed within the past seven days, while recent custodian Paddy Kenny was left behind at Thorp Arch after being excluded from the Italian trip.
