Former Leeds United boss and academy director Neil Redfearn has finalised a settlement with Leeds that could see him set to become the new Doncaster manager, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Doncaster Rovers sacked manager Paul Dickov yesterday after a poor start to their Sky Bet League One season and are looking for his replacement sooner rather than later. Neil Redfearn, after impressing at Leeds United, looks set to become the new boss of the South Yorkshire side.
Redfearn did a good job at Leeds United despite a divided dressing room and an unpredictable chairman, and his eventual sacking last May took Leeds fans by surprise and cause outrage towards owner Massimo Cellino.
But now, he looks ready to become a manager again as Doncaster strive to reach the Sky Bet Championship once again.
However, the ex-Leeds boss is in competition with the likes of Nigel Clough, Ian Holloway and Rob Jones for the job as the story continues to change.
Whether or not Redfearn will become Doncaster boss remains to be seen, but the fact that he has finalised a settlement with Leeds is an indicator that he is ready to take his abilities elsewhere.
Things seem to have calmed down at Leeds United and Uwe Rosler has a promising young side at his disposal – there’s no doubt that Redfearn would have liked longer at the West-Yorkshire club, but he may now be hoping to move down the M62 to continue his managing career.
