Leeds fans will be delighted with this BBC Radio update on 45-year-old after claimed interest

By Harvey Byrne

Reported interest in ex-striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is “wide of the mark”, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

The Daily Mirror claimed on Sunday that the Yorkshire giants were considering the 45-year-old for the manager’s vacancy following the departure of Garry Monk last month.

However, the local radio station reported via their official Twitter account on Monday that the club were not looking to appoint the former Burton and QPR manager.

This update will be greeted with delight by the Leeds fan base with many on Twitter posting their disappointment on social media after being linked with their ex-goal machine.

However, there is still no indication who Leeds are looking to appoint and on Sunday former Real Madrid midfielder Victor Sanchez was made the favourite for the prestigious job.

The club’s support will be keen to see the situation resolved by new owner Andrea Radrizzani as they look to push on from a seventh placed finish in the last campaign.

It is the closest the club have came to ending their wait for top-flight football since reaching the play-off final in 2006 and the pressure is now on Radrizzani to get his first appointment correct.
