Leeds have named Paul Heckingbottom as their new head coach.

The 40-year-old leaves Barnsley to move to Elland Road and has signed a contract that runs until the end of next season.

He succeeds Thomas Christiansen who was sacked on Sunday after a dismal run of form which has seen Leeds not win a match since Boxing Day.

Leeds have fallen to 10th in the Sky Bet Championship, and Heckingbottom leaves a side who sit 21st in the same division.

“Leeds United are delighted to confirm the appointment of Paul Heckingbottom as new head coach of the club,” the West Yorkshire club announced.
