Uwe Rosler is in line to become Leeds United's new head coach.

Leeds owner and chairman Massimo Cellino is understood to have spoken to the German, who has been out of work since being sacked by Wigan last November.

A source close to Cellino said: "Massimo thinks Rosler is a good coach and he likes him a lot."

Cellino refused to confirm if Rosler would be succeeding Neil Redfearn, whose contract expires on June 30, but admitted he did want to make an appointment soon.

"I have to sort this situation out very fast because we need to find out where we are going next season," said the Italian

Rosler kept Norwegian side Molde up in 2010 before taking over at Brentford the following year, narrowly missing out on promotion to the Championship in 2013.

He was appointed Wigan boss in December 2013 and led the Latics to the FA Cup semi-finals, beating his former club Manchester City en route.

However he could not maintain this momentum and was sacked six months ago with Wigan in the bottom three of the Championship.
