According to reports coming out of Italy tonight, Leeds United are going to part company with boss Steve Evans – with the possibility of him being sacked before the final game of the season this Sunday.

Tuttomercatoweb, the news outlet which have reported this news, cite ‘many misunderstandings’ between Evans and Leeds United’s chairman Massimo Cellino as the reason for his pending departure.

The Scottish manager’s contract is due to run out come the end of the season but is yet to have had a talk with the chairman about the possibility of an extension.

Following the Whites shock 1-2 home defeat at the hands of already relegated Charlton Athletic last weekend, it’s not looking good for the former Rotherham United manager.

Inter Milan legend Walter Zenga is already being touted as a possible replacement for Evans, and you could read more about the Italian here.

Evans took the reigns at Elland Road in October and has gone on to post a record of 14 wins, 11 draws and 12 losses from his 37 games in charge, with Leeds currently sitting 12th in the league.
