Leeds United boss Steve Evans has admitted that he wants to stay at the club and believes a decision on his future is set to be made ‘very soon’.

The 53 year-old has overseen a mid-table finish for the Whites this season since joining the club back in October.

Currently sitting in 12th place in the Championship Leeds could finish anywhere from 8th to 15th depending on how results take shape in the final two games of the season.

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino is known for his poor managerial turnover rate and, with Evans’ contract set to expire at the end of June, it wouldn’t be a shock if he let the Scotsman move on.

Winning 14 of his 38 league games in charge, the former Rotherham United boss spoke about his love for the club during an interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post;

“I want to stay and I have made it clear, I don’t want to be anywhere else. I love this football club and respect it and everything that goes with it.

“I love representing it and I have said many times that by adding a few bits of quality to help in the dressing room, that we can have a real good season next season.”

A decision is likely going to be made within the next few weeks.
