LEEDS United are to hold further talks with David Hockaday about becoming manager.

The former Forest Green boss remains the short-priced bookies favourite to become the new head coach at United.

His coaching credentials included working as Watford's assistant manager as a coach for Southampton and Leicester.

Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino had also gone on record to state that he wants Nigel Gibbs – United’s assistant manager under former boss Brian McDermott – to remain with the club next season and play a role within the coaching staff. Gibbs and Hockaday previously worked together at Watford.
