Leed’s head coach, Sam Allardyce has left the club by mutual consent on Friday after failing to save the club from relegation to the Championship in his four-game spell as interim boss.
Allardyce, 68, arrived at Elland Road to replace the sacked Javi Gracia as Leeds battled to extend their stay in the Premier League to a fourth successive season.
But Leeds lost three and drew one of their games under the former England boss, with their relegation sealed on the last day of the season.
Allardyce had hinted he would be willing to remain in charge next season to oversee Leeds’ bid for a quick return to the top flight.

“Leeds United and Sam Allardyce can confirm that both parties have mutually agreed for Sam’s spell at the club to end following the completion of the 2022-23 season,” a Leeds statement said.
