Leeds United legend Eddie Gray believes the club will be looking for someone with a proven track record for the vacant managers position.
Neil Redfearn is in temporary charge following the sacking of Simon Grayson last week and Gray thinks the club will be looking to employ someone who is not currently at Elland Road.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Gray said, “The club needs somebody who has had the experience of winning something and getting promotion.
“There are a few who come into that category and managing in the Premier League, because that is where we want to go.
“You look at Neil Warnock and you think yes, but in the Premier League he has been let go, but getting you into that league then yes.
“I think the club will be looking for a candidate from outside the club, someone with a proven track record.”
Experienced managers Neil Warnock, Billy Davies, Alan Curbishley and Dave Jones have all been strongly linked with a move to Elland Road.
Leeds have also been linked with a number of younger candidates who are relatively inexperienced with Huddersfield Town boss Lee Clark and MK Dons boss Karl Robinson amongst the front runners.
