Thomas Christiansen: Leeds United set to name ex-Spain international as head coach


Leeds United are set to appoint former Apoel Nicosia manager Thomas Christiansen as their new head coach.

BBC Radio Leeds reports that the ex-Spain international, 44, is close to signing a deal to replace Garry Monk.

Christiansen led Apoel to the Cypriot First Division title and the Europa League last 16 in 2016-17 in his sole season in charge before leaving in May.

His only other managerial experience is with AEK Larnaca, also in Cyprus’ top tier, who he led from 2014 to 2016.
