Former Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder is at Elland Road on Sunday ahead of talks over the vacant managerial role at Leeds United, 90min understands.

The Whites have been on the hunt for a new manager since relieving Jesse Marsch of his duties following the 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest - a defeat that extended the club's winless Premier League run to eight games.

West Brom coach Carlos Corberan was the club's first choice replacement for Marsch, but the Spaniard put pen to paper on a new deal at The Hawthorns instead of talking over at Leeds.

Andoni Iraola, who has overseen Rayo Vallecano's remarkable rise up the La Liga table this season, was the next to be linked and subsequently snub Leeds, with 90min being told by sources that Iraola wanted to stay at Vallecano.

Feyenoord manager Arne Slot was also on Leeds' shortlist, but confirmed that he wanted to stay in the Eredivisie on Friday, stating: "It is true that I will stay with Feyenoord, I can say that with this one. That is clear, fans do not have to be afraid."

90min understands that Leeds United have now turned their attentions to Schreuder, who was recently sacked by Ajax after a spate of poor results.

Schreuder is at Elland Road to watch Leeds United face off against arch rivals Manchester United and is set to discuss the vacant role afterwards.

The Dutch manager endured a torrid spell at Ajax in the first half of the 2022/23 season, winning just 45% of his games at the club, but he has enjoyed previous success in management. Schreuder oversaw a fantastic 2021/22 campaign for Club Brugge in Belgium, winning the league title with the club.
