Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has stated that Head Coach Steve Evans will be leaving the club at the end of his contract this summer, according to the Mirror’s David Anderson.

Cellino said that despite Evans leaving, he is in no rush to confirm the departure as his contract expires on June 30th.

Anderson quotes Cellino as saying that “We have a contract until the 30th of June to confirm Evans, so I don’t need to rush.”

The 53-year-old took the job at Elland Road in the middle of October following Uwe Rosler’s departure from the club.

In 37 matches as Leeds United boss, Evans has won 14, drawn 11 and lost 12. He’s currently held the job for 201 days.

Evans is Cellino’s sixth manager at the club since taking over in 2014. Previously, Brian McDermott, David Hockaday, Darko Milanic, Neil Redfearn and Uwe Rosler have all been sacked by the Italian.

The news comes just hours after Evans was spotted watching Peterborough United’s 5-1 victory against Blackpool in their League One clash, the Posh job is one that Evans has been linked with in recent weeks following speculation about his Leeds future.

Evans’ final game as Leeds United boss should be the 1-1 away draw against Preston this weekend, where Chris Wood’s penalty was cancelled out by Hugill’s late strike.

    Idiot Cellino when will it end you can’t keep changing managers when we are crying out for stability. It doesn’t work in football when will you realise that we are just going round in circles. Steve Evans deserves to be manager next year no question but you are just so pig headed it’s always about you go now idiot.

    In the main supported Cellino but think he’s making a big mistake here Evans is at least committed to the club he knows where we need improving and would spend wisely (even if the money comes from the sale of Lewis cook because that’ll be next ) but to install some no mark ex Italian goalkeeper or what ever with no knowledge of the team or the championship would be insane (well I rest my case)
