Ex-MANCHESTER UNITED manager Chris Armas is set to join Jesse Marsch’s backroom team at Leeds.
Leeds lost Mark Jackson to MK Dons earlier this season and have been on the hunt for a new assistant manager ever since.
Leeds boss Jesse Marsch could ally with other American Armas, according to the Daily Mail.
The report said a deal has been agreed and Armas has arrived in England to take up the post pending visa approval.
The 50-year-old has managerial experience in MLS.
Armas was coach of the New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC.
But he comes from a horror spell under Ralf Rangnick at Man Utd.
Rangnick joined the Red Devils as interim manager in late 2021 after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked.
However, Rangnick failed to guide the Old Trafford club to a top four finish.
The Austrian was then expected to move into a behind-the-scenes role, supporting then-newly appointed Erik ten Hag for the 2022/23 season.

However, he did not take up this post and instead heads Austria.
Marsch’s side will be next in action when they take on Brentford on Sunday.
