According to reports in the Daily Mail, Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson has been linked with the vacant managers role at Leeds United.

According to the Newspaper, Parkinson is on Andrea Radrizzani’s radar after an impressive season which saw him lead the Trotters to second place in Sky Bet League One, and automatic promotion straight back to the second tier.

The Bolton boss has even seen his odds drop as low as 10/1, after being a 50/1 outsider just yesterday.

Leeds are still on the search for a new manager after Garry Monk’s resignation two weeks ago.

It came as a shock when the former Swansea City boss left the club, and fans are sceptical about what the future holds.

They are also desperate to see a new manager appointed, so that preparations can begin for the Sky Bet Championship 2017/18 season.

Phil Parkinson is an experienced managed, who is well known throughout the football league.

The 49 year old has previously guided Bradford City to success, winning the Sky Bet League Two Play-Offs in 2013, as well as leading them on one of the greatest ever cup runs, taking the Bantams to the League Cup final, where they eventually lost to Swansea City.

Parkinson made the controversial move from Bradford City to Bolton Wanderers in the summer of 2016, just a few months after the Trotters were relegated from the second tier.

Their stay in Sky Bet League One was a short one, as Parkinson and his side earned 86 points and a place back in the Championship for the upcoming season.

It is reported by the Daily Mail that Bolton Wanderers would be entitled to a significant amount of compensation if their manager was to leave the club.
