Former Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman is interested in taking the Leeds United job should it become available in the summer, according to The Sun.

There is a lot of speculation surround current boss Steve Evans’ future at Leeds, with many believing that he will not be head coach of the club next season.

Evans was appointed as Leeds boss in October 2015 after leaving Championship rivals Rotherham United.  The club look like finishing in a mid-table position this season, with Leeds in 18th position when Evans took over.  However, taking Leeds up the table may not be enough for the Scot to keep his job into next season.

Should Evans be dismissed this summer, former Leeds player Dougie Freedman would be interested in taking the job.

Freedman was most recently in charge of fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest, before being sacked in March with the club in 14 place in the league.

With Leeds owner Massimo Cellino speaking of soon-to-be Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti one day being boss of his club, it is unclear whether Freedman will be considered this summer should Evans leave.

Although Evans seems to get a lot of criticism, many fans feel that he has done a good job at Leeds this season and should be allowed to continue his work into next.
