Next Leeds United manager: Ex-Newcastle United, Liverpool and Aston Villa bosses emerge - gallery

Leeds United are searching for a new manager following the sacking of Jesse Marsch.

The Whites currently sit 17th in the Premier League table following Sunday’s 1- defeat at Nottingham Forest, with their last victory coming eight matches ago at the beginning of November

Marsch brought in new signings Max Wober, Georginio Rutter and Weston McKennie - on loan from Juventus - during the January transfer window to try and change his side’s fortunes, however, Leeds have lost faith in the 49-year-old.

Chants of ‘Jesse, time to go’ were heard from the away end at the City Ground yesterday, and Leeds have listened to fans’ demands. The American departs after less than a year in charge, where he won eight of his 32 league matches.

The Leeds hierarchy now turns its focus to appointing a successor to Marsch. Check out the early frontrunners - including former Newcastle United, Liverpool and Manchester United bossess:
