Having decided to pull out from their attempts to appoint Alfred Schreuder, Leeds United are back to square one in their managerial hunt.

Having faced rejections from the likes of Andoni Iraola, Arne Slot and Marcelo Gallardo, the Whites turned their attention to the free agent, but it appears some internal differences led to the Elland Road brass deciding against it.

On the same day, we get a bit more information about the failed attempt to bring the Feyenoord manager to Leeds, as De Telegraaf’s Kick-Off podcast bring the latest.

They explain that the Premier League side were ‘prepared to go to great lengths to bring in Arne Slot’, as they wanted to pay €3m to compensate the Eredivisie side, but the Eredivise club decided to ‘let that amount go’.

That’s because they knew that winning the league would provide them a direct spot in the Champions League, thus bringing in ‘a multiple of the amount offered’ by Leeds.

Meanwhile, the Whites were prepared to give the Dutchman ‘an annual salary of €4m’, as he was the ‘first and main candidate’.

Then came moves for Phillippe Clement and Andoni Iraola, which then led to the Schreuder attempt, who was a free agent after being sacked by Ajax.
