Journalist: Key Leeds United duo likely to stay at club

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will want their side to strengthen in the summer after another poor campaign.

The Whites started the season in fine form after some impressive signings during the previous summer transfer window, however, the wheels came off fairly quickly once they were beaten. Paul Heckingbottom was installed to replace Thomas Christiansen after Christmas, however, the former Barnsley manager has failed to make a real impact since arriving in February.

Leeds look set to finish mid-table once again and the punters are starting to become frustrated with a number of performances that the side have produced, calling for the fairly-new boss to leave already.

The locals have already voiced their concern with him in the top seat at Elland Road, as well as director of football Victor Orta, however, it appears that the club will keep them at the helm for the time being.

According to Phil Hay, who is a Yorkshire Evening Post journalist, believes that Leeds do not have any plans to replace either of them and there have not been any signals to suggest otherwise.

Landlord’s Verdict

The locals in the Tavern will be watching what the club decide to do carefully in regards to the future of Orta and Heckingbottom, however, the punters will all be calling for them to considerably improve the squad in the summer.

Leeds fans – thoughts on the future of Orta and Heckingbottom? Let us know below!
