Former Leeds United midfielder John Hendrie says the club should give caretaker manager Neil Redfearn a go as manager at least until the end of the season.
Leeds have yet to announce a successor to Simon Grayson, who was sacked last Wednesday by the club.
A number of managers have been linked with the post, with the favourite to succeed Grayson changing on an almost daily basis.
Leeds made a winning start under Redfearn at the weekend when they defeated Bristol City 3-0 at Ashton Gate at Hendrie believes it might be worth giving to Redfearn until the end of the season.
Speaking on the BBC Late Kick Off, Hendrie said, “Personally I would say to Redders, take it until the end of the season, and give him a go.
“He is chomping at the bit, the players want him, and he is very popular amongst the players.”
Billy Davies has been linked with the job in recent days and Hendrie believes he would be an attractive candidate. “If not Redders, then Billy Davies is an attractive candidate,”continued Hendrie.
Former Nottingham Forest boss Davies is the current favourite for the post.
Davies left Forest at the end of last season after losing out in the championship play-off semi-finals for the second season in a row.
The 47 year old has a good record of reaching the play offs in the championship.
In two seasons at Preston North End, he led the Lancashire club to a final and a semi-final before leaving to join Derby County.
In his first full season with Derby, he led them to promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs after finishing third.
