Redfearn, who took charge of the first team for the 2-1 loss at Charlton following the sacking of Neil Warnock, has been chiefly employed as the club's lead Under-21/pro-development coach.

The 47-year-old's first-team role will see him work alongside McDermott's assistant Nigel Gibbs.

"I want Nigel and Neil to be together with myself," McDermott told the Leeds official website.

"(Under-18's coach) Richard Naylor and Leigh Bromby are here at the training ground as well and they are both good people. I hadn't met Richard before, but he is a good man.

"I'm really pleased with the whole environment to be honest. Everyone wants to go in the same direction and that's important. What I won't be involved in is a blame culture, moaning, or gossiping. I have no interest.

"I won't do anything to the detriment of the football club."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
