Former Reading boss McDermott tipped to replace Warnock at Leeds

Brian McDermott, sacked by Premier League Reading in March, could be in line to replace Neil Warnock as Leeds United manager after Warnock resigned on Monday, according to the Daily Mail.

Warnock left Elland Road after a 2-1 home defeat to Derby County, with Leeds lying 12th in the Championship table and out of the play-off mix. Warnock had previously said he would end his tenure at the club if they did not reach the play-offs, and also claimed his post at Leeds would be his last in football. The 64-year-old spent 13 months at the helm in Yorkshire.

McDermott is one of a number of names mentioned in connection with the vacancy, having been let go by the Royals only shortly after he was named the Premier League’s Manager of the Month for January. McDermott took Reading to promotion last season but the Berkshire side struggled throughout the campaign. Nigel Adkins, formerly of Southampton, was appointed to replace McDermott.
