Leeds are set to bring in three new faces to make up the coaching staff under manager Thomas Christiansen, it was revealed on Monday.
The Whites are set to lose Pep Clotet, James Beattie and Darryl Flahavan from their set-up, with the backroom staff expected to join up with Garry Monk at Middlesbrough.
The trio worked with ex-Leeds manager Monk last season at Elland Road and they are now set for a reunion at the Riverside Stadium.
They are set to be replaced by Julio Banuelos, Ivan Torres and Marcos Abad at the Yorkshire club in a new-look set-up.
Christiansen and director of football Victor Orta revealed the incoming changes on Monday in a press conference, as quoted by West Yorkshire Sport.

Banuelos will arrive as the assistant manager at Leeds and he has worked under Christiansen at both APOEL Nicosia and AEK Larnaca in recent years.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper coach Abad is joining from Middlesbrough, which is where Orta also arrived from.
Christiansen is set to be joined by a trusted advisor in Banuelos at Elland Road and the pair will hope to achieve success in English football.
The recently appointed manager faced the media for the first time on Monday and outlined his plans to achieve promotion from the Championship next season.
