Former Middlesbrough defender Gianluca Festa will reportedly replace Brian McDermott as the new manager of Leeds United.
Although there has been no official confirmation from the club regarding McDermott's departure, captain Ross McCormack revealed earlier this evening that the 52-year-old had been fired.
His successor has already been identified and Festa could potentially be in the dugout for tomorrow's Championship match against Huddersfield Town at Elland Road, according to numerous reports.
The 44-year-old, who also played for Portsmouth, has more recently been coaching Lumezzane in Italy's third tier.
