Paul Heckingbottom – under-fire after a string of terrible results at the club – is ready to bring in an extra first-team coach, according to Alan Nixon.

The Sun newspaper’s transfer expert reported that Heckingbottom was looking for an experienced coach to come in and work with the first team in a bid to turn around his side’s fortunes – and presumably save him from the sack.

Nixon went on to say that no names had been mentioned yet but they were looking to bring in someone with experience and a domestic name.

Of course, it could be too late.

Football Insider revealed last week that the club had already decided to let him go, with the only decision left one of timing.

Leeds fans would prefer this to happen with the majority wanting him gone, and took to Twitter to react to this major reported development that would seemingly give Heckingbottom a stay of execution.

One fan said he shouldn’t have been given the job in the first place and another said this was just proof that he was out of his depth.

Here are the best reactions to the news that Heckingbottom is looking for help with the first-team:
