Warnock has already said he plans to stand down as Leeds boss once their hopes of a play-off place are mathematically extinguished and says he spoke to Adkins before he was appointed Reading boss.

"I spoke to Nigel a few weeks ago and told him what a great club Leeds are - what a great opportunity it would be for him here," Warnock told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

"The club need an outstanding candidate and I think you'd put him in that category. But he's obviously weighed everything up and decided that Reading's the best move for him.

"To be fair to Reading, they're a well-run and established club and he'll be safe even if they come down. Then he'll have money, a good squad and every chance of getting them back up. I can see the appeal but I think he'd have been great for Leeds too.

"He was definitely interested. But then you don't really need to sell Leeds United to anyone. The club sells itself."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
