Heckingbottom’s spell at Elland Road has only brought four victories so far, with Leeds losing eight of the 16 fixtures the 40-year-old has taken charge of.
The ex-Barnsley boss replaced Thomas Christiansen at Elland Road and was tasked with keeping alive Leeds’ play-off hopes, which were fading fast following a difficult start to 2018.
Leeds eventually finished the season in 13th, with two victories in their final three matches of the campaign.
After such a sloppy start to life at Elland Road, there is bound to be speculation surrounding Heckingbottom’s future at Leeds.
However, for now, it looks like Andrea Radrizzani and Leeds’ board will keep patience with the former Barnsley boss.
If that is the case, Leeds’ summer planning needs to start and they have to first of all, get their summer transfer strategy right.
