The former Sunderland trainee signed a new contract with Barnsley only last Friday but it is understood that a release clause of about £500,000 was included and that Leeds triggered it on Monday afternoon less than 24 hours after Christiansen's departure.

But now it appears Heckingbottom, 40, is set to leave Oakwell to join Leeds, according to Whelan.

Saturday's 4-1 defeat at home to Cardiff - after which fans turned on Christiansen - was the final straw for Radrizzani.

The Dane managed to last just eight months in charge at Elland Road and has been dismissed after leading Leeds on the run which has seen them not win a game since Boxing Day.

"That said, the overall performance of the service sector remained weaker than the long-run growth trend", she said. Moreover, the rate of job creation edged up to a five-month high.

Leeds now sit 10th in the Championship table, seven points off the play-offs and 18 clear of relegation.

Ex Derby County boss Steve McClaren has also been ruled out.

Former Leeds boss Christiansen had a win ratio of 42.9 per cent at the Yorkshire club, winning 15 of his 35 games in the dugout.

Heckingbottom does not have a sparkling record in the Championship, but he did get Barnsley promoted out of League One and is highly thought of in coaching circles because of the limited budget and resources at Barnsley.

Brett Favre To Visit Eagles On Saturday

The Whites, who sacked Christiansen's backroom staff along with the head coach, are keen to make an appointment as quickly as possible.

Second favourite is former Leeds manager Simon Grayson at 7/2.

The club hope to appoint a new manager before their clash Sheffield United on Saturday.

Also up for consideration is Reading manager Jaap Stam, a name which will be familiar to Manchester United fans.
