Bielsa 4-9 to land vacant Elland Road hotseat
PAUL HECKINGBOTTOM has been sacked from his role as Leeds manager after just four months in charge.
The 40-year-old switched Barnsley for Yorkshire rivals Leeds at the start of February but failed to create an impression at Elland Road, winning only four of his 16 games in charge.
Leeds, who finished 13th in the Sky Bet Championship, will start the season with a new face at the helm for a fifth successive year and it is reported the club are looking to recruit a more experienced manager.
Former Lille boss Marcelo Bielsa is 4-9 favourite with Sky Bet to take over the reins at Elland Road, with Leicester's Premier League-winning manager Claudio Ranieri the chief danger at 3-1.
Paul Tisdale, who had been the longest-serving gaffer in English football's top four divisions following Arsene Wenger's exit at Arsenal, has left Exeter City after 12 years in charge.
Tisdale has guided the Grecians to consecutive League Two play-off finals and his achievements have seen him heavily linked with the vacant job at MK Dons.
Sky Bet make him a 1-14 chance to land the gig at Dons, who are 7-1 with the same firm for League Two glory.
