Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to urge the club to appoint Mick McCarthy as manager in the summer.

McCarthy, 59, has done a steady job at Ipswich over the past five-and-a-half years and it seems that the Elland Road faithful believe that the ex-Wolves and Sunderland manager is the one to take them back to the Premier League.

The former Republic of Ireland international has already won the Championship title two times in his spells at the Stadium of Light and Molineux and he also seems to be someone who can hold down a job at a club for several years.

Leeds have rolled through the managers ever since dropping down from the Premier League almost two decades ago and owner Andrea Radrizzani has already shown Thomas Christiansen the exit door just months after hiring him to replace Garry Monk.

Paul Heckingbottom has not filled fans with confidence with just one win to his name since taking charge over a month ago and it seems that supporters want a proven Championship manager like McCarthy to take the helm.

One supporter demanded that the Whites “go all out” to get the Barnsley-born boss on board.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

McCarthy has been at Portman Road since November 2012 and sees Ipswich currently sit 12th in the Championship standings.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites must ensure that this major error is only a one-off when they released this Premier League centre-forward.
