Darko Milanic is reportedly to become Leeds United's latest head coach.

Darko Milanic is reportedly close to becoming Leeds United's new head coach after allegedly buying out the rest of his contract with Austrian club Sturm Graz.

The 46-year-old is on his way to England to finalise the deal later this weekend, according to Sky Sports News.

United owner Massimo Cellino has been looking for a new manager since the sacking of David Hockaday in August.

Milanic took over as Sturm Graz manager in 2013, leading the side to a fifth-place finish. They are currently mid-table in seventh this season.
