Leeds United are set to announce their new head coach this lunchtime, owner Andrea Radrizzani has confirmed.

Leeds have been searching for a new chief since Garry Monk resigned last month despite the offer of a one-year contract on the table from Radrizzani.

Radrizzani said on Twitter: "White smoke from ER! Big day for @LUFC fans. Thank you for the patience and support, our Manager will be announced very soon."

Leeds have stayed tight-lipped on their pursuit of a new manager with fans left to guess over the identity of who it could be.

It is understood the announcement will come at midday on Thursday.

Reaction to Andrea Radrizzani's tweet...

@jamesjamesbrown: "please have made a good choice who can improve on what Monk did, knows the league, maybe even the players."

@LUFCLDP1989: "I don't care who it is. I don't care what their past experiences are. I will back this man till my head hurts. Because we are Leeds United"

@LeedsEverywhere: "Whoever it is they need to have #SignKyleBartley top of their agenda! #lufc"

@LeedsZac: "WELCOME TO LEEDS, whoever it is, we are the best fans in the world, just need optimism & belief, then as always we MARCH ON TOGETHER."
