Leeds United head coach: Paul Heckingbottom named as Thomas Christiansen's replacement on 18-month deal

Leeds have named Paul Heckingbottom as their new head coach.

He takes over a Leeds side which has fallen to 10th in the Sky Bet Championship - and they are 11/1 with Sky Bet to finish in the top six this season.

The 40-year-old leaves Barnsley - 21st in the same division - to move to Elland Road and has signed a contract that runs until the end of next season.

He succeeds Thomas Christiansen who was sacked on Sunday after a dismal run of form which has seen Leeds not win a match since Boxing Day.

"Leeds United are delighted to confirm the appointment of Paul Heckingbottom as new head coach of the club," the West Yorkshire club announced.

Ahead of his first training session with his new players, Heckingbottom told Sky Sports News: "I can't wait to get started.

"It's a big opportunity at a big football club and it's something that you work hard for.

"What appealed was the size of the club. When I spoke to Victor (Orta, director of football) and the owners they were aligned with what I was thinking and how I liked to work.

"I'm presuming that's the reason they thought I was right for the job as well, because I'm aligned with how they like to work, so hopefully that will be good for us going forward."
